Analysis tools like CScout, http://www.spinellis.gr/cscout/, might make
it easier, e.g. http://www.spinellis.gr/cscout/doc/walk.html, though I
wonder if opaqueness sometimes makes debugging more awkward.  Perhaps
it's better to clearly define what's permissible;  it's not as if
there's hundreds of programmers out there ready to violate it.  Lyndon
can keep them in line.  :-)

Cheers, Ralph.
