It's enough not to make the problem worse, which is why I suggested it and what I wanted to avoid.  If you copy-paste the tests you're adding now, it worsens the problem and makes it that much more tedious to fix later on (and to maintain in the meantime).

Why must the code sharing be all or nothing?  Elsewhere we phase in improvements incrementally.  Even with the particular refactoring you're suggesting for the future, I'm not sure we'd want to do it all in one patch.

If you begin the process now and add appropriate comments and TODO's pointing the way, at least the next person will know how to take the next steps.
