  I am happy to report that rename by UUID does work (although,
  from the above links, you would think it did not):

   :; vgrename aaaaaa-bbbb-cccc-dddd-eeee-ffff-gggggg VolGroupForeign
    Volume group "VolGroup00" successfully renamed to "VolGroupForeign"

  Although it seems to be a best practice, naming volume groups
  in a unique way isn't done by default on CentOS -- and I
  inherited a bunch of CentOS Xen instances on a CentOS Dom0...

  Thanks for you help everyone,
