Notice that change previewing for the rename operation can be done with
the current infrastructure. It's a matter of finding the references,
displaying them and do the replace when the user clicks on OK. The API
supports that, although we haven't implemented the GUI.

I'd like to see a high level design of the API to get an idea of how you
plan to improve the refactoring infrastructure.
