Several other distros tend to include a different rename command.
debianoids have the perl regex one, redhatoids a simpler but
incompatible one that does simple substitution:
rename from to files
changes the first instance of "from" in each filename of files
in "files" to "to".
Some distros also have an "mmv" command that's different again,
it's in the "mmv" package in debian.
