Hey Chris,

Thanks very much for doing this analysis and work!

I don't think this is actually in use by anyone (remnant of last year's 
summer of code project that didn't end up going anywhere far), so we can 
safely ignore this monster. :)

Thanks. Work really started taking off in the beginning of this year, 
and a lot of people have pitched in.



P.S. You might be interested in looking at z3c.recipe.depgraph. For some 
reason its sccmap tool spits out unreadable graphs now though, and 
graphviz's sccmap reduction of graphs to cycles is one of the most 
useful tools I've found so far in doing this kind of analysis. Not sure 
what's going on there.
