Yup, renaming APIs should be a project into the wiki. Thanks, let me rephrase
my idea for Libvirt storage during GSOC again.

Project name: The renaming APIs support for all objects.

Summary: Adding 'rename' API support for all objects, for all objects,
that is to say, not only for storage volume but also for storage pool,
snapshots, etc.

Sill level: Beginner

Mentor: Osier Yang.

Osier, would you please give the summary in details, thanks very
much in advance.

Any Comments? Thanks in advance ;-)
