When renaming a topic, Twiki offers to change all instances of the old topic name to the new topic name, whether or not the original "reference" was a wikilink. For example, if there is a topic named Frank, and it is moved to Gerald, then if the default "change references" list is accepted, all instances of Frank will be changed to Gerald, not just [<nop>[Frank]]. TWiki should change only links, that is, change unescaped WikiWords and link references in [[]] double brackets (ideally, it would also canonicalize the text within [[]] double brackets to compare with the topic being moved).
