Hi all.

I just commited a patch providing support for rewrite rules in field
expressions.  This facility allows to define aliases for some of the
fields that will be printed by the utilities.  For example:

$ recsel -p Name,Email[0]:PrimaryEmail persons.rec
Name: Mr. Foo
PrimaryEmail: address@hidden
Email: address@hidden

As usual, comments/testing/patches are welcome :)

Having rewrite rules will be quite useful with the join support I am
preparing for the next release.  Stay tuned!
