Full site renames are much harder than user renames; there's a few areas to
* changing the '''database name'''
This is really hard, and makes ops and toolserver admins hate anybody asking
for it. Ideally we should never have to do it but we have a lot of stuff that
maps language & site suffix directly to/from DB names, or uses the DB names
directly for some cross-wiki operations.
If the mapping of '''site key name''' <-> '''database name''' can be
abstracted, this at least some of that may become easier.
* changing the '''language code prefix''' for the subdomain and interwiki links
Currently I think some manual mappings can be done to change the visible
language & subdomain without changing the database name, but it leaves the
"different" db name exposed in other places as above.
Note also that things like secure.wikimedia.org can need additional mappings.
