Yes, that was probably the case. I don't think that was a bug (but if it
happens again, I will file a bug).

Yes, these are the slides I am referring to (along with some others I found

CRefactoring make sense only if you will provide a UI to the user. 

I our case the AST refactoring will happen under the hood (based on some

extending CRefactoring) should suffice.
