One thing to consider is consistency between PROBE-FILE, RENAME-FILE

said that file does not exist but DELETE-FILE succesfully removed
directory.  Similarly, if directories are supposed to be files
in DELETE-FILE IMHO they should also be allowed in RENAME-FILE.

PROBE-FILE and RENAME-FILE already work with directories in ECL, even if the latter still does not like the trailing slash (should fix this)
