It isn't that simple.  What I usually need to do is compare the
differences between the code in two revisions, and doing that across
two files without history is a pain in the ass.

If a file has meaningful history, every effort should be made to retain
that history across the move.  Among other things, it documents the
source of the code.  But for something like configure.in, which has
no meaningful history, I don't think anyone would care either way.
