[Bug 2294] Detect renamed files and handle by renaming instead of delete/re-send

Looking for this capability prior to entering it as an enhancement request
myself, I found everything here and basically have the same use case.  My
version is that I am creating a regular backup of logs from many servers'
services onto a single box, and doing so with rsync.  Some of those services
still do the .1, .2, .3 file rotation, which makes for a lot of needless work,
especially when these are 100+ MiB files.  It would be great if rsync could
detect this to just transfer the new file and rename the old ninety-nine (or
however-many).

Maybe unison could handle such renames better?
