I think the best you can get is two invocations of `git update-ref`:

        git update-ref <new_name> <old_name> &&
        git update-ref -d <old_name>

Although if you're scripting it the `--stdin` mode may be easier:

        git update-ref --stdin <<-\EOF
        create <new_name> <old_name>
        delete <old_name>

Note that "<new_name>" must be a fully-qualified ref (that is, it must
start with "refs/", so "refs/heads/new_name" for a branch or
"refs/tags/new_name" for a tag).
