14.6.8 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.
