If the only way to effectuate the renaming of a file on a given system
is to copy the contents of the file, does an implementation conform
to the C Standard by always returning a failure from the rename
function? Footnote 113 would seem to imply this.
Yes, subclause 188.8.131.52 permits the rename function to fail if
it must copy the file contents, among other reasons.
