This is deserve an emphasis.
If you are doing a renaming or moving in your project, it'd be a very good
idea to either 1. do renames/moves directly in repository or 2. commit each
separate rename/move. This way you are much less likely encounter superserious
issues with conflicting/ambiguous names in future.
