      George,

      Thanks for the Mikado method reference, as I wasn't aware of that one. Looks fantastic, because it seems to address the business payoff of using TDD while refactoring (i.e. not adding new features). I'm concerned about spending a lot of time (more importantly convincing others to spend lots of their time) on something that ends up proving largely what I already know, so hopefully that will clear things up a bit.

      I second Chris' recommendation of WELC and suggest you pair it with the
      Mikado Method (http://mikadomethod.wordpress.com/book/)
