In his Point essay, "Refactoring Tools Are Trustworthy Enough," John Brant argues that refactoring tools that help developers work more efficiently is more important than tools that preserve behavior. In his Counterpoint essay, "Trust Must Be Earned," Friedrich Steimann argues that current refactoring tools are unreliable and that developers should give their best to create refactoring tools that are correct.
