Use tag data to formulate new file name for selected tracks' files

OS 10.8 or later. This script will rename the files of the selected tracks (or the files of the tracks in the selected playlist) with a filename pattern that you formulate using the tracks' tag data. Optionally, export a copy of the files to a chosen location and rename the files in that location.
