I can think of an obvious behaviour, do not change what matches the wildcard 
but change the "fixed" part, i.e:

rename foo* bar*

would change "foolish" in "barlish" and "foolproof" in "barproof"

The windows shell is not a very friendly environment for scripting such a 
thing <g>. A good idea for a python macro in WinCVS, probably.

Thank you,
