comment Gradual approaches to dependency injection
@Slomojo I see your point, but you can still do a lot of safe refactoring without tests, particularly automated IDE ractorings like, for example (in eclipse for Java) extracting duplicated code to methods, renaming everything, moving classes and extracting fields, constants etc.

comment Is it true that a stricter coding style is always better?
Another con can be that forcing particular coding standards on developers can be bad for morale if they conflict with the persons own personal opinions or what they're used to. I've had some co-workers significantly frustrated by this.
