IMO, refactoring is always about small changes -- and those changes don't change any functionality. So, "rewriting a flagship application" isn't refactoring...

So, back to the youtube video... I dip my toe in, fool around a little, then I'm trapped .... and .... I roll everything back via CVS (no panic here).

That certainly doesn't sound like refactoring to me. But I get the joke.

Perhaps the tagline should be "Major rewrite from scratch". That would be much more terrifying.
