Appreciate the 2 cents, Ed. I'm sure the time saved would be worth much more than that! :)

Adding my 2c:
http://meta-extractor.sourceforge.net/ says it handles PDF metadata extraction, and has a CLI for automation/batch processing. It might take a little time to get it working. If I had to do this task, I'd try and take the output XML files and apply regular expressions to find the filename and creation date in the XML, and then build up a rename/mv command that would do the actual renaming. Output the constructed commands to a .bat file, and then invoke the batch file.
At least, that's what I'd try.

Thanks,
Ed.
