Renaming folders/tags in Google Reader

I can’t believe that there isn’t a built in way to rename tags within the Google Reader UI!  Shocking.

Quickest way I’ve found is to export your feeds (Settings | Import / Export), edit the XML by hand (fortunately my 100 or so feeds are organised within ~12 folders), delete all of your subs from GReader and reimport your edited XML list.

I wonder if the GReader UX guys are having trouble deciding between Folder and Tag for classification.
