Of course, renaming would not make sense with physical folders either, but
it's closer to how you might think of the situation. You'd have the folder
named "Foo" here, and the other folder named "Foo" there. Then you might
call them "This Foo" and "That Foo", or "Foo" and "the other Foo" to rename
just one.
