Yes, a find uses or find references feature would be very useful, even
if it were somewhat limited to the "easy" cases such as function in a
module as opposed to cases like a method used on an object instance --
though the "easy" cases may not be that easy because a module can be
passed into another function. These are solvable, but not simple,
problems. I thing we'll end up with a list of uses where some of the
items will be possible uses.
It is something that is in our plans to implement.
