Method renaming: M-x query-replace
Jump to line: M-x goto-line

The feature I most miss from using Visual Basic IDE (lousy day jobs *grin*) 
is not the ability of the code to jump to errors, but the autocompletion 
and hints for methods and arguments. There are lots of time I'm coding in 
Ruby I've got three windows open. One shell, one irb, and one emacs. I use 
shell to test, emacs to code, and irb to run quick tests of built-ins, 
often ending in "p instance.methods.sort". Pop-up hints would get rid of 
that.
