Feedback from a user's point of view (if that's helpful):
How about only displaying a single entry for both operations as in:

Path Extension Status

bar.txt txt moved from foo.txt


IMO that would make more sense to the user and simplifies the
use-case/UI a bit.
It will also solve the problem with the current approach that if you
have two renames/moves, you don't really see which entries are related
to one another.

I certainly can't say whether combining the two entries to a single one
will break current use-cases and/or require much work to adjust these,
so it might be out of question and you already considered (and therefore
rejected) that idea.
