Due to the nastiness Refresh has to perform under the cover even Shane has to admit that it simply is not some "make development faster" panacea.

Shane might (perhaps) admit it but I do not :-)

There is not much "nastiness" that "Refresh" does:

  (Manual) refresh has only a single problem:
  it does not refresh dependent products automatically.

It also doesn't handle global data properly.

It tries to do something that Python modules were never
designed to support, which is to load them more than once.

When it fails, it does so in subtle ways that cause people
to lose lots of time.
