Renaming Things

(Yes, some of the below is my fault.)

Bugzilla offers incomplete support for renaming things. For example, you
can rename Products, Components, Groups and so on - but this breaks
stored queries and charts.

In this constantly-changing world in which we live, people want to
rename things. It's all agile, man. And they want stuff to continue
working afterwards.

What doesn't get fixed up when stuff gets renamed? Is it just stored
queries and charts, or are there other things?

Can we fix this? Is this even fixable?
