Yeah, I think that's complicating it too much and I wouldn't rename  
parts at all. It's confusing if the AdminPart suddenly is known as  
BarPart. That's what's nice about Server.map, you can map it wherever  
you want, with the name you want. That should be sufficient.

If you want you can make gen set Server.map to "bar" when renaming a  
part as bar, but I wouldn't touch the internals of a Part too much  
(like renaming AdminPart to BarPart (and then also the  
AdminController to BarController?)).
