In Gmail, I have some hierarchical labels:

A/B/C

I want to make C a top-level label, but can only find a way to rename it in its current position in the hierarchy or introduce a new hierarchical level.

I suppose I could apply a new label to all the mails in C, then remove the old hierarchical label, then rename the new label, but I wonder if I'm overlooking a more direct way?
