libURL does it's magic with FTP, and FTP does its magic with a set of 
commands available for the protocol, including two for renaming files:


Thankfully, Dave Cragg opens the door to use any of them with the libURL 
call "libUrlFtpCommand" - e.g., to rename a file:

   get  libUrlFtpCommand("RNFR",\

   get  libUrlFtpCommand("RNTO",\

Wonderfully detailed notes on everything in libURL here:
