Renaming project that is also using VSS?

What is the best way for renaming a project (including namespace) that
also has its tree structure as the project name in VSS? This project
(DLL) is referenced by a couple of other projects in their early
stages. This means renaming the references in them also.

Just make sure everything is checked out, and go ahead and rename it and make
your changes. You will probably get a VSS warning about it.
I've done it a couple of times, and nothing has "Blown Up". Your mileage may

Ok thanks. The particular project is a DLL. At some point I'll
distribute the updated DLL. This update will break existing apps that
are currently using the older DLL. Are there any methods for dealing
with this besides find/replace in the existing apps?

If I'm just starting an app I know will use DLLs that could very well
change their namespace, is there a way to encapsulate that? Would
creating an interface to the DLL solve this?
