no, currently users are not granted permission to change filenames...the
admins are the only ones who can do this but this being said there is a
problem with the server software that prevents the admins (that's me and
Eric) from being able to change filenames...so, the workaround is to delete
the errant file and re-upload a new version with the corrected name...

the filenaming convention is very simple and most programmers already adhere
to something similar:
- only alphanumeric chars and underbars/underscores
- keep it less than 12 chars long
- add a mp3 suffix
