Renaming volumes

Today my friend gave me a usb key and asked me to rename the volume name
of the disk so it got mounted with a sensible name.

<bzzz>Nope, I can't do that in the GUI.

What about adding to the .Volume namespace in HAL to support renaming
volumes? I appreciate we don't want to rename partitions on fixed disks,
but what about just removable volumes?
