I was thinking of a GUI attached to the debugger that highlights the basic
blocks on a CFG as you step through the program. Completely unnecessary of
course, just seems like a cool idea :)

How complicated is the algorithm neato uses for the CFG generation? You may be
able to write your own Forms program to do the same thing (obviously it
wouldn't need all the bells and whistles that neato et al provide).

Anyway, keep up the good work on the monograph tools.
