Hmmm.... I'd forgotten about that one. It was written by Vladimir Lanin
and posted to comp.sources.unix (Volume 21, issues 87 and 88) in April
Its real feature though was that it could far more complex and useful
transformations to filenames. Almost reminded me of the far more
powerful wildcard handling on Multics (except of course MMV uses REs).
