The easiest way to achieve what you want is to keep the three
files as separate files in the repository and to the merge
(automatically, i.e. using a small script) every time you
check them out.

This way you would (continue to) keep full, fine-grained histories
based on their original structure, while on the outside implementing
a new structure.
