Can I rename a local user and have the user directory change its name, too?

I want to rename local user "ws11" to "ws05" and have the user's
directory change from "ws11" to "ws05" as well. I know how to change
the users name, but the directory, which does follow the change
remains named "ws11". If I try to change it to ws05 in explorer,
Windows warns that the dir should/can not be changed.
