Actually, I had no idea that this is in nautilus right now.  Is it in
1.0.4?  Because I'm using 1.0.3 and it's not there.  Huh.  I guess that
I'll just have to wait for the next release.

I think that this feature could be useful for everybody.  If you want to
change an icon or a filename, this would make things much easier.  I
like the idea of changing filenames in a sidebar panel much better than
I do using the rename menu item.  I find the menu item unwieldy for the
most part.  I think that this would also make emblems much more
accessable and therefore more useful.
