Err... Refactoring _is_ redesigning, that is the whole purpose of
refactoring.

The difference is that traditional rearchitecting/redesiging is taking down
the existing design and rewriting the application with a new design.
Refactoring is doing it in such a way that you can go from A -> B in small
steps without breaking the app at any point.
