I don't like the current setup nor I care about gitweb history as I stated 
previously, you should know that ;-)

I could even daresay:

1) 'git log --follow' is all that I need
2) Forgetting to write-history-per-macros could render our life even easier


Since we must write a script that walks the per-macro-git-history ... we 
should think twice about the way we are heading into, instead of heading down 
easy handed and regret the choice later.

I wouldn't like to see someone complaining that the automatic-generation 
script got twisted by an erroneous choose made easy-handed...

ANYWAY: I like both approach (your and the Peter's one) and I simply state: 
which is the better one for both tasks (repository rearrangement, automatic 
history generation) ?

Have a good day,
