Filename rewrite means you change the length of one of the lines, hence
I'd again feel compelled to fix the layout when the result is not to
my liking.

I don't see why you'd need to use some awfully long file names only to
later fix them, even though you know what will be the proper final name
right from the start.

That wouldn't be my choice of filename, but sure, why not.
