Well, I've moved even more messages over to the new, extensible Generator framework that I've been in the process of building. I built a lot of tests before I started doing this to make sure everything functions exactly like it did before I started moving all this code around.
The tests have proven to be immensely helpful, and greatly increase the confidence I have that I'm moving in the right direction. My code, once I release it, tends to work pretty well, but usually the cost of that is huge amounts of time, much of it spent trying to build large pieces of code in my head before I type them out. This technique significantly lowers the cognitive burden and makes it easier to write stuff I'm confident in more quickly.
