 Description: Move/Copy/Append/Link multiple files
  mmv is a program to move/copy/append/link multiple files
  according to a set of wildcard patterns. This multiple action is
  performed safely, i.e. without any unexpected deletion of files due to
  collisions of target names with existing filenames or with other
  target names.

The idea is that the first face shown to people is one they can readily
accept - a more traditional logo. The lunacy element is only revealed
subsequently, via the LunaDude. [excerpted from the Lunatech Identity Manual]
