Git does not record any copy/move operations at all but rather
automatically detects *similar* files.

The 'diff.renames' config setting and 'git log --follow <file>' then
provide means to access that information.

Can you provide an example for what kind of structure changes you're
talking about.

*Possibly*, tools like git-filter-branch might help cleaning up the Git
repo after converting it using git-svn.
