If master were merged into frameworks we could of course do such a
rename without too much fuss. The problem here is that Pali wants to
throw away the current frameworks branch and bring in the commits
which made it up, newly rebased on top of master, with the commits
which were reworked eliminated (ie. a 'pure' history).

The number of commits which get rebased as part of this, is naturally,
greater than 100 and was hence blocked by the server. This is not a
failure, it is the system operating as designed, and there are
numerous reasons why it is setup to do this.
