There is mc_rename... Or you have simple bug to fix. Many low-level
vfs-es implement it and it is supposed to be there. Notice last line:

pavel bug:~/gnome/mc/vfs$ grep rename *.c
fish.c:FISH_OP(rename, XTEST, "#RENAME /%s /%s\nmv \"/%s\" \"/%s\";
echo '### 000'" );
fish.c:    fish_rename,         /* rename */
ftpfs.c:static int ftpfs_rename (vfs *me, char *path1, char *path2)
ftpfs.c:    ftpfs_rename,
local.c:local_rename (vfs *me, char *a, char *b)
local.c:    return rename (a, b);
local.c:    local_rename,
mcfs.c:static int mcfs_rename (vfs *me, char *a, char *b)
mcfs.c:    mcfs_rename,
mcserv.c:void do_rename (void)
mcserv.c:    status = rename (f1, f2);
mcserv.c:    { "rename",     do_rename },
smbfs.c:                        *p = 0;                         /* cut
off dir/files: sharename only */
smbfs.c:smbfs_rename (vfs *me, char *a, char *b)
smbfs.c:    if (!cli_rename(sc->cli, ra, rb)) {
smbfs.c:    smbfs_rename,
vfs.c:MC_RENAMEOP (rename)
