Thanks for the suggestion. My preference would still be to have patmv
as its own package as I think patmv and renameutils have different
audiences. Also, patmv has its own life outside of perl or
renameutils. My point about renameutils was only that the fact that
this package was recently included into Debian convinced me that there
was a place for something small and special-purpose like my patmv
command. As for comaintainership, that's always a good idea, but I've
changed patmv about four times in 10 years, so I don't think it will
generate too much activity. :-)
