is there a way I could get the rename utility
(http://man.he.net/man1/rename) that works
with perl expressions on my MinGW system? I can't figure out whether I'm
package and if so which.

Hmm. That didn't lead me to an obvious answer. After adding "utility"
to the search term, a bit more digging turned up:
Yeah, that's directed toward MacOS-X, but MSYS doesn't provide that
perl script either. However, copying it from /usr/bin/rename on my
Linux box, to /bin/rename on my MSYS VM, suggests that it may work
equally well there.
