I'm ambivalent.  I can imagine situations in which I would
like to use `r' on the marked tracks.  For example, I might
go through a buffer to mark all misspelled tracks, and then,
--- when I'm done with that ---, turn to correct them all.

But then again, of course, I could use `M-&' in that situation.

However, I don't think the prompt to rename another file
would be very annoying if you only wanted to rename the
first one:  Hitting `C-g' at the second prompt would keep
the first change and escape the other prompts --- right?

What about a third opinion?  Can we get one?

I'm happy to hear that.  I think so too.

Yes, I too would like to see that happen.

Wow... what a prospect!

Okay, then --- we totally need this feature. :-)
