Hmm, I need to click the file anyway though.
So I can either: Leftclick the file, then press the renaming shortcut
Or just: Middleclick the file
Also you can't select files that simple anyway in single click mode so
you will probably have to use the context menu (or shiftclick then F2).

Maybe... At least it should do something when middleclicking. :) And
renaming should be as convenient as possible.
