Renaming strips and videos is disabled in outliner

First time user of VSE, browsing around attempted to rename a strip in the outliner, gives error message “Warning: Cannot edit sequence name”, was unexpected.

  • strips and videos names are editable in the VSE properties panels
  • unable to edit in the outliner as expected

I’m not sure what the solution is but its explicitly disabled in the source:
./blender/editors/space_outliner/outliner_edit.c:293: BKE_report(reports, RPT_WARNING, “Cannot edit sequence name”);

I hope this is appropriate for this paper cuts section.
