We probably should add an official [REFACTOR] or [REF] or similar tag to the
list of tags parsed by the SQFIXES page, since it really is separate from
[ENH], [FIX], etc.  Also add it to the list on

Sometimes a submission will be a combination of [FIX][REFACTOR] or
[ENH][REFACTOR], in which case both tags can be used.  But some of the Kernel
Cleaning Group's submissions will probably just be pure refactorings.

How about [REFACTOR] as the tag?  [REFACTORING] feels too long (much longer
than the other tags), and [REF] feels kind of short, although [REF] would
probably be okay too.

Does this sound reasonable to you, Bert?
