refactor filenames

Is it possible to easily refactor filenames in Wing? I love the ability to refactor variables within a project, but I haven't found a quick way to refactor filenames (so that it propagates to all the files that import it).

Am I missing something, or is this not a feature? There has to be a better way than renaming the file and then individually updating all files that import it.

Ah! I discovered that if I refactor an import that imports the filename I want to rename, then one of the suggestions in the refactoring toolbox shows the file as "<filename>: Whole file."

I was expecting to be able to refactor a filename by rightclicking the file in the project browser, but all I was finding was just "Rename."

We'll add a better way to find the refactor option to rename a module in a future release.
