It would be very great if AWB will allow us to move many pages the same way (e.g.: moving Goldfinger article to Goldfinger (film)), there is yet 2 pywikipedia scripts (''movepages.py'' and ''pagerename.py''), but ''movepages.py'' does not append words to the title and ''pagerename.py'' does not convert to UNICODE, especially when using special characters (as French é, è, à.. and also Arabic letters). So, please, such a feature on AWB is highly recommanded, thank you.

The needed actions are :
Prepend (to titles), i.e.: prepending a word to titles (in a list of articles), e.g.: USS Michigan (for the USS ships). (this is just an example)
Append (to titles), i.e.: appending a word to titles (in a list of articles), e.g.: St. Louis, Michigan. (this is just an example)
Find and replace (in titles), i.e.: finding a word in the titles (in a list of articles) and replacing it by another, e.g.: Goldfinger (cinema) to Goldinger (film). (this is just an example)
Delete (from titles), i.e.: deleting words from the titles (in a list of articles), e.g.: State of North Carolina to North Carolina. (this is just an example)

Possibly best implemented as a MassMove plugin... (could be a default ship plugin with AWB though)

there is yet 2 pywikipedia scripts (''movepages.py'' and ''pagerename.py''), but ''movepages.py'' does not append words to the title and ''pagerename.py'' does not convert to UNICODE,

I can't see the script ''pagerename.py'' in Pywikibot-compat or Pywikibot. Is it this custom script: http://www.strainu.ro/software/31/?id=31 ? If it is useful, we can add it to compat and/or port it to core (and fix any unicode issues)

movepages doesnt append to titles, however it can be given a -pairs file listing old->new titles to batch the moves.

btw, T117909: Mass rename/move of pages? looks like a very similar request, and it has an AWB recipe.
