[snip: fairly sensible rules]

I considered writing a program to do this about a year ago, working
alongside another program that would use REL/REV to figure out the
structure of a site (for various purposes, including to help maintain
integrity and sense). I never actually got round to it, because almost
immediately something else came along (that someone wanted to pay me for
:-), but I still think that a set of tools along these lines would be
useful.

(Upon saying which, someone will pipe up with a really obvious,
high-exposure, free software package that does all this ... please? :-)
