Indeed, it does work for some people, but I've personally witnessed some very intelligent folks spending hours on problems created by misuse of Refresh. Maybe this is attributable to documentation. At the time Refresh was created, Zope products were generally simpler and didn't have any run-time registries. Refresh is now less reliable mainly because products are more sophisticated.
