Two possible routes:
1) Rename the current list directory. Create a new list with the
desired name. Move necessary files back and verify correctness
(use ~/bin/config_list to verify).
2) Create a temp new list. Dump config.db with config_list. Edit
as appropriate. Build new config.db for old list with edited
General observation: There's not much to be careful of here -- its
pretty simple obvious stuff really. No, that doesn't mean you
shouldn't keep full backups and audit trails.
