?? At work (Emacs 21.2.1 on Linux), if I hit C-c C-r with point on a
wiki link, it renames not only the file, but also the link in the
current buffer.  At home (OS X), the file gets renamed, but the link at
point does not.

my $0.02:

Being able to restructure (rename) wiki pages is a valuable feature in a

The current rename feature, as I understand it, allows only to rename a
file and zero/one of its references (links).  Perhaps I'm missing
something, but I don't see how this is all that useful --- unless most
wikis have a tree structure where each page is linked to from only one
spot.  Am I missing something?

So personally, I think full rename capability would be quite swell, but
the package is certainly *very* useful without such a feature.  Perhaps
documenting the behavior is a good way to go.
