The difference probably lies in the number of refactoring action that
are available. Distel supports only a few methods.
I think this project will implement more.
Refactoring is important for functionnal languages. For example side-effect
free function get everything from parameters. If you extend your code to
add features, you might need to pass a new parameter to the function and
handle this everywhere in the code.
This is a very interesting project :-)
