I'm good with None/True, but that would imply that for posix rename we'll need to implement the overwrite=False option...which would be a nice thing (the shell mv command has -i for that).

I think a warning would be good, because a unix programmer will assume rename will work the same on windows as it does on posix, and vice versa for a windows programmer.  I suppose the fact that we haven't gotten many (any?) complaints about it means it isn't that common a problem, though, so I don't feel strongly about it.
