Discussion on: How about a refactorthon?

This is a good idea. I think that testing needs to be discussed though. The cost of refactoring comes from regression testing existing functionality. I think we would need refactorthons followed by testathons. You could argue that figuring out the regression testing strategy and following through is part of the overall refactorthon. I'd agree about that. Either way, it's something I'd love to try.
