Tool in Mylly: VRT manipulation / Rename VRT positions

# Rename VRT positions

This tool specifies new names to VRT positional fields. Each field is identified by the value to an old-name parameter rather than by position. The value of the corresponding new-name parameter specifies the new name.

Other fields keep their old names, or else their default name `Vk` where `k` is the number of the position.

## Example

Suppose the input VRT document has the following three fields for each token.

1. surface form
2. lemma (aka base form)
3. some annotation

Suppose that the input document starts with the following comment that specifies the names `foo`, `bar`, `baz` for the three fields.

```     <!-- Positional attributes: foo bar baz -->
```

To make the output document have the name `lemma` for the second field, specify `bar` as the value of an old-name parameter and `lemma` as the value of the corresponding new-name parameter. Then the output document starts with the following comment that specifies the new name `lemma` for the field previously named `bar`, and the previous names for the other two fields.

```     <!-- Positional attributes: foo lemma baz -->
```
