How to Rename a Field in Attribute Table Using Model Builder?

I am wanting to be able to, in an automated fashion through a Model or other means, rename a field in an attribute table once the dataset is created. 

I have read in earlier versions of ArcMap, the only way to "rename" a field would be to add the new field, copy over the data, and delete the old field, and this functionality was added to 10.x whereby you can manually rename a field using ArcCatalog.  However, I'm wanting to rename a field within a Model.

There's an older article at http://ideas.arcgis.com/apex/ideaView?id=0873000000087wgAAA which indicates this functionality at one time did not exist, but now that you can do it manually, did Esri implement the ability to do it using some tool or other means?
