hg convert from git doesn't follow renames

Hg Git DOES support our repo - however, it would seem that hg-git
doesn't do renames, either.  (We actually tried hg-git before hg
convert, as a matter of fact... and I've since tested hg git with a
couple of trivial git repos, and was never able to get it to translate
renames over to hg...)

If it were included / intended to be included, however, that would be
great news!
