  • I also would say that what others have suggested, with Fausto’s idea of making it selectable (update the underlying data or not when changing the field name) is a great idea.

    Two immediate use cases I can think of where this would be a time saver:

    – New developers who are doing lots of experimenting and realized they’ve named things in a way that no longer make sense
    – Seasond developers who inherit projects from elsewhere where some dingus has just used inscrutable/nonsensical/misleading names

    I mean, sure, you can poke around in the db, but I’d rather have a sane, automated way to deal with renames…
