I'd feel more comfortable refactoring it if we had some automated
testing of those code paths, but I don't see anything wrong with doing
it now from a timing perspective. We still have 4 months until the
start of the final CommitFest. I wouldn't be too enthusiastic about
starting a project like this in January, but now seems fine. A bigger
problem is that I don't hear anyone volunteering to do the work.
