Havn't used all its features under VA yet, currently I like it most
for helping me to clean up my initial hackings. Besides many other
things it can:

o rename methods (the selector and all references to it)

o push up methods into a common superclass (removing duplicates in

o push down variables into subclasses

o create a new method from a text selection

o format methods based on definable rules

o its 'lint' tool checks methods e.g. for unused locals

The was an article about it in the SmalltalkReport (Jan 98?)
