Mike, like Paul wrote in the mentioned thread: There is nothing more to 
renaming a song than moving the dir and renaming the session file. What 
I suggested is not necessary at all. Ardour's session dirs have loads 
of files that you almost never want to touch directly so their 
filenames don't matter really.
