Yeah that was my point... you wrote 'before' and I thought at first
that it was redundant to say such a thing. Then I realized that you
might mean that the rename could not be IN the HEAD revision.

The clarification that I was looking for was if there is a
distinction between doing the rename and the content change in two
different revisions vs. having the content change and the rename as
part of the same transaction... and therefore it could BE "HEAD" vs.
BEFORE "HEAD".. and of course there is no "after"

I don't think it is particularly important with respect to the
original issue :)
