      pros, cons and recent comments
      Powerful, easy-to-use, with as many options as pyrenamer, allows selecting files among many to perform operations on. Provides good feedback of which files will return errors on rename attempts (e.g., dupes.) Unlike Krename, does not have an Apply button, but will instantly rename when Rename button is pressed.
