If actually amending the old histories to the current histories doesn't work
or becomes a major bear, then perhaps a link to the older history from within
the current history page would suffice?
If such a link can be made, it would also be nice to have this work for
redirects as well (that is, from the history of the target page there would
be a link to the redirect's history). That way if an article was previously
moved manually then there still would would be obvious links to that old
history at the newer page title's history.
I alone manually moved several hundred (at least) articles in February and
March from improperly capitalized and pluralized page titles to convention
