This indeed feels like a reasonable project, where there is enough work
to do to fill up 12 weeks of good effort while still having something
measurable to commit, and where the design is known enough in advance
that it won't be stalled by developer discussion on correct design.
While the work should definitely start with offline renames, there is
also room for some additional scope such as online rename support for
hypervisors such as ESX that might already provide such functionality
natively and where the existing libvirt approach of dumpxml/define may
be inadequate to expose the full hypervisor capability.

Remember that not all good ideas will be selected, but I think you are
finally settling into a good idea.  And even if you don't get accepted
by GSOC, your idea for contribution is still useful and would still be
worth working on.
