I like the option #3. Quite easy to implement - added as TODO for 1.2.6.

Just an idea: we could use advrename template scheme for passing
parameters to the custom program (eg. $n for filename without extension,
$p for parent path and so on) - that should work pretty well with single
files, but what to do with multiple selections? How other file managers
do deal with custom programs parameters?
