you can even do:


and i am sure a simple p6 thing can be written which takes pairs of
old/new names and loops over them. someone wanna rewrite that here in p6
and we can see how complex it would be? a rename method might not be so
important then.

as for rename on hash keys, why not call it rekey? also even if it is
called rename as a hash method it is different than rename as a function
to rename a file so there is no ambiguity.
