Good question. Support for updating the mapping files on refactoring of persistent objects
in Eclipse would be cool. Though in the context of a GSoC project I'd suggest to treat it
as a "bonus task" outside of the "required" scope. I.e. it is more important for us to get
a working and usable plugin out there with a minimal set of useful functionality vs. having
lots of unfinished features that we can not release. 

So my suggestion would be to initially focus on a small production-quality plugin, and keep
in mind possible future improvements.
