Since installing KRename adds a relevant item to Dolphin's context menu 
automatically, maybe the real problem is simply that KRename isn't 
installed by default in the typical distros that our users use, so 
nobody ever finds this functionality unless they happened to already 
know about about and manually installed KRename.
