Difficulty: 5 - this is non-trivial, since unless designed
with care, it will be easy to make irreversible changes in
large numbers of files

Hack factor: 2 - may be more or less

 - Cases to handle such as:
   - File is open in editor
 - Can we avoid creating reams of DataObjects to do this?
 - What about unknown file types?  If we don't do this via
   DataObjects, this becomes an issue.  Maybe I'm worrying
   too much.

This actually sounds like something that might be better implemented
as part of re-factoring.  Eclipse allow for text instances of changed
method names, etc, to be changed in files with names matching given
