Rather late me too :)

You can also try renaming a group of selected files with Amarok. Unless 
you're into writing shell scripts, that sould even prove faster than the 
cli, especially if the audio files are in different folders on different 
partitions - once Amarok has scanned all your drives, you can chose to 
add all of them to the playlist, then rename all of them from there (or 
select only a few, whatever the directories they are in. Quite 
convenient if you use multiple partition and can't remember some odd 
files scattered here and there.
