That's only doable on certain types of software. In highly user configurable, very broad software products, there's no practical way to do that.

And of course we aren't just talking about refactoring. In many cases it will require jettisoning out of date tools that have deep roots in the code base, and/or rewriting large chunks of it that might contains really complex domain knowledge.
