Basically, that would require that the change (in Arthur's "safe use"
policy that would be a change marked with a bug number) is separated into
two changes: the content changes that are not affected by the rename on one
bug number, and then the rename and the content changes that depend on the
rename on another bug number. Then you can merge the former without the
latter. Otherwise, if you merge all of the change's content without the
rename, your include directives or links will be wrong.
