[wingide-users] Feature Idea: Find Imported Names

This isn't an entirely well-formed idea but...

I'm currently updating some code to use a newer version of a library.  The 
module name has changed (let's say from 'pants' to 'shirts').  However, the 
semantics have changed slightly as well, and so a simple search-replace won't 
suffice. I'd like to be able to find/review all of the uses of the library.

Just searching for 'pants' won't do, as in some places I've done:

from pants import jeans, shorts
from pants.ladies import skirt

What I'd like to be able to do is find all uses of names imported from a 
module.  I'm *not* looking to find objects, instances, aliases or the like 
(which would be much harder).

Anyway, just a thought.
