Rename symlinks

I've been using symlinks for a while, as they are hella useful, but I just discovered that you can rename them. I've actually been wondering it for a while, the thought occurred to me, but I haven't really had a need to test it until recently. I guess I thought that if you renamed the symlink, it would rename the target folder as well, but that really doesn't make too much sense.

Anyway, hurr durr moment. That's extremely nice for things like creating a link from the C:\Documents and Settings\Google\Chrome folder to C:\Program Files\Google Chrome. (That's not even my path because I've moved stuff around, but you get the idea.) Also really nice for Dropbox, which I'm going to move and symlink as well soon.
