I do not know how difficult it would be or what the issues are.
Regardless, it is still a problem in that Subclipse tried to do something,
it failed, and you did not know it failed. Perhaps there was an error in
the Console view if you were showing it, but ideally the error should have
rippled all the way back to Eclipse so that the rename did not happen.
