For sure!  I don't bother with all that clicking ... now you [Unix folk]
don't have to either :)

for PHP3FILE in `find . -type f -name "*.php3" -print`
        PHP4FILE=`echo ${PHP3FILE} | sed 's/\.php3/\.php/g'`
        sed 's/\.php3/\.php/g' ${PHP3FILE} > ${PHP4FILE}

That recursively finds all files starting in whatever directory you like,
and creates the newly-named files with all the references corrected as
desired (with a small addition, the old files can be archived or removed).

I just had some fun with that script and a copy of an old doc root ... 17
directories, deepest directory was at 3 levels, and 216 .php3 files (from
1998 :) ... took a few seconds to make all the modifications.
