It opens the "content" of a directory in $EDITOR, end "commits" the changes when you quit, which means that your can rename entries, delete them or create new ones.

And btw, moreutils should be installed everywhere, be it only for "sponge(1)"…

I originally installed moreutils years ago precisely because I wanted something like sponge. But oddly enough, the thing from the suite that I've used more than any other is vidir.

Next most used is probably parallel, which I prefer over the GNU utility by the same name.

(Re moreutils-parallel vs. GNU-parallel, see this interesting Debian bug report & discussion: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepor...bug=597050. The final message from Joey Hess is particularly amusing.)
