Yes and I think it would be very
useful for many
users, why you think it doesn't?
I believe that Pierre is right that generic replace is more useful than "replace underscore with spaces".
And it is good that is what he is implementing as it seems to solve all the requirements requested in this thread.
It also at the same time keeps things simple and useful, and users happy
I feel that batch rename is somewhat an extra feature in XnView and should be relatively simple.
If many option would be added to it, it could get complicated to develop and maintain.
And I was simply worried this could slow down development on features I find more important in
an image tool. But then, that is probably just me being a little selfish

The difference in my opinion is that these are image specific rename options that are usually
not available in special rename tools that don't have a focus on images.
It is less likely to be found elsewhere and should therefore absolutely be in XnView.
I am sure Pierre has and will make the right decisions on XnView for us the users!
P.S. Hope there are not as many But
