#109 Dynamic renaming of objects based on mapping tables

Minor Effort
Lee Butler

It would be nice to be able to dynamically rename things in the database based upon a text file that contains mappings of the form:

current_name desired_name

This could be either renaming based upon existing database item name, or based upon some attribute (such as part number)

One option is to simply rename things in the geometry file. The other is to take a top-level object name and duplicate this tree structure with new names in place. This might be done by either duplicating objects (and stashing the old name as an attribute?), or creating combinations with the new name in the new tree that refer to the old geometry in the old tree. Maybe the user should have the option of picking which style?

    This is implemented as of r37488 as a new -f file option to the mvall command. As implemented, it takes the simple route of renaming things in the geometry file based on the input mapping file.
