Imagine simple operation like "method renaming" in a simple "dumb"
environment like text editor + grep. Now imagine how simple it can be
if system "knows" all your identifiers and just regenerates relevant
portions of text from internal database-alike representation.

No, I don't think so. I never use LabView but imagine it something
very "graphical-oriented". No, I think about more "classic" text view.
But back-ended with "smart" underlying system - not just obvious
"text".
