Student Project: Other Actions for Multiple Files?

Recently I reported on the 'batch refactoring' project by one of the NetBeans Platform students at the Julius-Maximilians-Universit├Ąt, in W├╝rzburg, Germany. Here is that article, called "NetBeans Platform Student Projects: Batch Refactoring". There is progress in this project, as you can see here:

It works perfectly. You right-click a package and then the actions above can be used to format all the Java files in the package or to fix the imports of all the Java files in the package. I like it a lot and it's a standard part of my installation now. I'm hoping Lorenz Weber, i.e., the student working on this project, will put the plugin in the Plugin Portal soon. Until then, all the code is here, in the issue, though it takes a little bit of work to figure it all out:

The next question is: are there other multi-file actions that should be included in this project? Lorenz would like to know—leave a comment here with your suggestions and he'll consider incorporating them.
