I agree that this is a useful patch (though it would
be possible to get the functionality without patching
Vim by writing a small DLL and using libcall()), since
there are plenty of old command-line utilities
knocking around which need 8.3 filenames. I also
agree that :X is a bit odd - it makes me think on
encryption... can we have ":~" instead - the mnemonic
is obvious to anyone who will need the function ;)
