fantasai: xre - PERL regex rename for every VCS

I love Larry Wall's rename command. It makes renaming files so much easier. I no longer have to think about it, I just do it, and it takes 15 seconds to rename an entire directory.

Except when there's a version control system involved. Subversion requires using svn rename and Mercurial wants hg rename and really, it's such a pain.

Faced with a long list of Subversion renames, I finally sat down and wrote a script to give me rename's interface with other VCSes. And since other people might find it useful, I'm posting it here as open source.

xre v3 in PERL

On Windows systems, you'll want to add a .pl extension.

On UNIX systems, you'll want to update the first line to point to the output of which perl and mark it executable (chmod +x xre). I keep mine in ~/bin/, which is in my PATH.
