I've read somewhere you can't rename files on Amazon S3, which might explain my not being able to rename assets hosted on S3? Or, have P&T found a way around this and I've just not set the right user permissions?

My current permissions for this user are:

        "Action": [

Thanks, Clive

This is definitely possible in Craft PRO -- I just tested with fine results (latest ver. 2.4.2670). So I would look at your IAM policy. If you have your policy statement scoped to the one bucket in question (and not to all buckets in your account), you could use some wildcard permissions for your main actions, like this, and I think you should be able to rename:

"Action": [

There is no "Update" call into S3 since it is object storage, and any change means a full rewrite of the file.
