I don't really see why atomic renames are a prerequisite for merge
tracking. Atomic rename makes it easier to track renames, but copy
with history will still exist as a valid operation and merge tracking
is going to have to handle that as well. We could implement merge
tracking without atomic renames. I suppose the pitfall would be that
when atomic rename is introduced it might not fit into the mechanism
used to implement merge tracking, is that a serious worry?

Are atomic renames really that attractive, or is merge tracking what
you really want?
