It just occurred to me that renaming files to numbers could
mess things up if the directory structure depends on the
filename lengths. So the rename would have to be something
the same length as the original (leading zeroes?). Which means trouble
when the original name is shorter than the new name....
The fix is left as an exercise for the reader. :-)
