No... your script will be passed all of that stuff. You just need
to change the -N part to what you want, then pass it all on to nsrnmo.

I guess that depends on your script. The more smarts it has, the more
it could construct a name that is what you want. But yes, I don't know
a way to get the information that 'nsrnmo' would have back out to your
script before it runs....
It would be nice if the nsrnmo script could be run once in a 'do
nothing' mode, but printed out some information that you could use for a
saveset name, then you could invoke it with the -N flag.

That is correct. You can only set one name for all savesets spawned by
the nsrnmo script this way.
This idea was just a workaround anyway. The nsrnmo stuff has the
capability to set the saveset name to whatever it wants to. There's
just (apparently) no mechanism to modify that string.

Probably. The only thing I would ever have used it for is reporting. I
do a fair amount of reporting that breaks things out by saveset name. I
almost never go into to the file index to gather information there.
