Refactoring & renaming

Hi all,


I've been going though some work one of our new developers did and cleaning some things up.


I had to rename a whole lot of objects.  It seems like the central repository doesn't really allow this..


The first problem I hit was that Ds wouldn't let me rename a checked-out object.  This implies to me it is impossible to maintain any history once I rename an object.  After I rename it I have tried checkout without replacement and then check-in, but this seems to leave me with two objects.


I'm thinking I must of missed something here; this is not an abnormal operation;  how should I approach this ?  Is there a 'best practice' process for refactoring/renaming ?
