It hasn't been done but we do plan to add refactoring support in some
form in the future.  Whether this will be based on Bicycle Repairman
or our own existing source analysis engine is not clear, but the idea
would be the same.

In the current product, it might help to alter the file reload options
in preferences to be:


This way if bicycle makes a change to a file that's also open in Wing,
it'll get reloaded automatically rather than prompting (Wing will still
ask first, however, if you've concurrently changed the file in Wing).

Though it probably won't be in the next release, refactoring support
is a big part of where we are headed.
