Certainly. OTOH how often is it that such an operation is truly
isolated? In a website, as I do, such a rename likely goes with the
modification of links, that work would be reverted as well. And
while a rename probably is one of the more drastic operations I
frequently have to do a variety of edits, covering larger numbers of
files and yet belonging together in one commit. Doing this per
scripts gives me both more convenient means of testing and the
opportunity of trying again much easier in the worst case of one
step having gone completely wrong. It all depends ...
