Well that's possible but I think it's worth experimenting. I'm pretty
confident there would be ways to clean the graphs up so they're sensible and
even if not they would still be a lot more helpful than nothing user-visible.
Would it be reasonable to just make the function extern with a comment that
it's an internal function subject to change in the future. That would at least
let us experiment with an add-on function for 8.3 so we know what we really
need for 8.4. Tools like this would be very version-dependent anyways.
