Re: git log --name-only improvement: show old file name in rename

The documentation for --name-only says "Show only names of changed files." I would interpret this to mean "output the names of all files that changed", not "output the names of all files that changed, unless git detected it as renamed". --no-renames makes it behave as expected, but having to specify it isn't obvious. A warning in the documentation could help, but --no-renames should probably be included by default when --name-only is specified.

I ran into an issue today with code that expected git diff --name-only to output all changed files. A file was created and an unrelated file was deleted in the same commit, but they happened to be similar enough that git detected it as rename, and thus git diff --name-only indicated only one file changed when two files were actually changed.
