[ESS] renaming processes / buffers

Am I right in thinking that while we can easily rename the inferior ESS
buffer, it is not recommended (possible?) to change the underlying
process names?

Let's say I rename the inferior ESS buffer, and then use
ess-switch-process to start associating R code buffers to
processes. ess-switch-process offers me completion on the process
names. Assuming the answer to my question above is yes, would you
consider a patch which performs completion on the buffer name instead?
By default this will be very similar (*R:3* vs R:3), but would be
helpful when one has renamed buffers.

Or is there a canonical way to work with renamed inferior ESS sessions
that I'm not seeing?
