[Cuis-dev] Rename class not logging to user changes

Hi Eric,
 yeap, class rename is not being logged ... a new type of change should be
created for that. If fact, it would be great to record all type of
refactorings as refactorings instead of only the changes composed by the

 Regarding the new change record, it should be a class rename type, not a
deletion and creation of the new one because that does not happen when
doing a class rename.
 There is an important question to answer: when loading the change record,
should it rename the references too or should only do it for those that are
recorded? ... if all the changes are loaded then the later should be
applied but if not? I think the best option is to only rename the class and
then let the other changes change the reference. (I hope this is
understandable :-) )
