Renaming a branch

Like an idiot I came up with a branch name that is not only too long and
unwieldy, but it no longer accurately reflects it's contents.  Is there a
good way to rename a branch?

The only option I can think of is to create a new branch, populate it with
my trunk at time t0, then merge in my crappy name, test, swear, test some
more, then delete the original branch.  Is there a better way (like an awk
script to frob all the ,v files in my Repository?)

I don't want to merge my branch to the trunk, the trunk is a set of vendor
code that gets modified for various projects.
