I do want to do those renames too.

One reason I didn't propose them yet is that many of those files  
contain multiple things and ought to be split rather than just  
renamed. When I looked at each file and tried to come up with a new  
name, it wasn't trivial. I really like the "file name and class name  
are identical" naming scheme.

Another reason is that I was unsure about whether the script could  
handle case-change-only renames. So maybe it's good to do them when  
reorganizing the directories.
