Except that those are ideas as far as I can tell, not actual code. In the
for what it is worth department, we've done this internally and found
it doesn't work as well as you might hope. Sometimes there are clear
delinations and you really can move stuff around but most of the time
there is stuff built on top of the stuff you want to move and there is
no way for a program to tell the difference between enhancements vs fixes
to the original change. Because of this, we've developed a policy, which
is very hard to make stick, which is "one idea, one changeset, no fixes".
