Make batch rename automatic when multiple items are selected

Right now Rename and Batch Rename has separate operators and shortcuts (F2 & Ctrl+F2 respectively). You can press F2 on multiple items but it will just rename the first item. You can press Ctrl+F2 on a single item which does not make sense.

IMO it should be just plain F2 and blender should intelligently call which operator depending the number of items selected.

For reference this is how Ubuntu does this:

Single Item:

Multiple Items
