I think this would be a fantastic SoC project! I've been meaning to
add some refactoring support to MD for a while, but haven't had the
time yet.

If you think VS2005 has helpful refactoring tools, I suggest grabbing
a trial copy of ReSharper: http://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/ . I
couldn't live without it.

Even more useful than automated refactoring is the addition of code
navigation tools. I actually can't work without "Go to declaration"
and "Go to type by name". These would work around a lot of the same
domain that automated refactorings would, but are even easier to

If all the refactoring support of ReSharper or IntelliJ IDEA is too
much, I think the Refactoring Rubicon is a reasonable benchmark for
success: http://martinfowler.com/articles/refactoringRubicon.html

I'd be happy to help with this work. Just let me know when/if you start.
