Refactor this.

There’s a good edition of the Industry Misinterpretations podcast where the presenters interview the people who created the first refactoring browser (for the dynamic language smalltalk). All the talk of object models representing programs got me thinking again about Intentional Programming and representing programs in a form that isn’t source code. Using a tool like Reflector, it sometimes feels as if the program really exists as IL and source code views in several languages can be constructed on the fly by a tool.
