[Moin-user] Renaming of page with automatic update

What Ken mentions is something that I would also very much like to see --
the ability to rename pages and have related links updated.

Along similar lines, it would be extremely helpful to have a
search-n-replace capability which supports regular expressions, provides a
preview of the changes (with checkboxes to disable unwanted instances), and
operates on the current revision of pages which contain a match.  

We are using our wiki for semi-formal project documentation and consistent
terminology (or changes in terminology) make for widespread individual edits
which is currently somewhat burdensome -- especially if you want to avoid
sleuthing around behind the scenes directly in the page files.
