Idenitfy code with duplicate functionality

A few customers I have talked to have asked how WCA4Z can identify duplicate code for them as part of the understand and refactor phases. Customers tend to have duplicate code across their applications that can be consolidated into reusable services. The problem is they don't know where this duplicate code is. It would be a large business benefit by improving developer productivity in finding duplicate code then refactoring that code to a new service.

    I too have talked with a handful of customers who have this concern/need. I believe that this could be beneficial so that a developer does not need to refactor and transform the same piece of code that has different variables, x number of times. It would greatly improve the developer experience.
