Photoshop/Bridge: More options needed for file naming when exporting layers/layer comps to files. Better batch rename needed.

I use the Photoshop "Script > Layer Comps to Files" and "Script > Export Layers to Files" quite a lot to produce large numbers of files. Photoshop automatically adds sequence numbers to these file that then I need to remove. I was delighted to find Batch rename in Bridge however it does not accommodate removing this sequence number only while maintaining the rest of the file name. Third party software has the options to do this (ex. BatchFileRename for Mac)....but why not make this available within the suite, especially because your own product adds the sequenced numbers without any options. I see a lot of other people having to remove the added sequence later. Please save us some time with more options here. Thank you so much.

I hate those numbers.
