Attached is a patch for 16 test cases.  All 16 test cases have been tested on 
Windows 7, Mac OS X, and Linux they seem to function well.  Before this patch 
there was only a single test case for rename.  For each test case I used 
"unittest.skipUnless" to make sure the platform was one of the three that I 
tested for Windows 7, Mac OS X, or Linux.  These test cases demonstrate that 
the documentation is incorrect and perhaps a little fuzzy.  I plan to submit 
updates to the documentation in the coming days.  This patch is only for Python 
3.4 but I will backport to 2.7 in a few days.  

I wrote the following code to find all the combinations based on parameters of 
the function:

src = ['src_file','src_directory_empty', 'src_directory_not_empty', \
dst = ['dst_file_exist','dst_not_exist','dst_directory_empty', \

print "Make sure you have functions in test_os for all of these"
for index_src in range(0, len(src)):
    for index_dst in range(0, len(dst)):
        function_name = "test_rename_" + src[index_src] + "_" + \
        print function_name

versions:  -Python 2.7, Python 3.2, Python 3.3
