How do you figure this? What would be the benefit?

If you say that we should plan ahead and keep the big picture in mind, I'd
agree; but it sounds like you're saying that small, incremental changes and
not letting the perfect be the enemy of the good were appropriate approaches
for 0.x, while now is the time for making larger refactorings all at onceā€¦

Did I misunderstand?

Cheers,
