Renaming VC Work Files and Master Files
---------------------------------------

   When you rename a registered file, you must also rename its master
file correspondingly to get proper results.  Use `vc-rename-file' to
rename the source file as you specify, and rename its master file
accordingly.  It also updates any snapshots (Note: Snapshots.) that
mention the file, so that they use the new name; despite this, the
snapshot thus modified may not completely work (Note: Snapshot
Caveats.).

   You cannot use `vc-rename-file' on a file that is locked by someone
else.
