Reliable refactoring is never easy, and D is a pretty complicated 
language. As a first step I've recently added a "Find references" 
command but that doesn't yet work too well.

There seem to be some "not implemented" messages in the "Test Cloud" 
output window that show up in the Error List if you choose "Entire 
Solution" as the filter. I'll have to investigate where these come from.
