> Renaming a partition changes the location of the partition to the default location of
the table, followed by the partition specification.  It should just change the partition specification
of the path.
> If the path does not end with the old partition specification, we should probably throw
an exception because renaming a partition should not change the path so dramatically, and
not changing the path to reflect the new partition name could leave the partition in a very
confusing state.
