Hello, Mark.

I've read your proposal and I have some feedback:
"Replace some instance(s) of repeated code or expressions": There is
already a "Declare local variable" action. I think it could be a good
starting point for this feature.
The "add abstract keyword" action for methods which already have a body:
Would this be related to your "move method up/down in the inheritance
chain" action?
"Develop, or begin to develop, a unit testing framework for code actions
and refactoring. " This already
See the existing code action tests for examples.
Add the async modifier to methods that use await: I like this idea but I
don't see why a new type of submenu is needed. Can't you just make it an
ordinary code issue/code issue fix?

Good luck.
Luís Reis
