Should be pretty easy to write - just parse the source looking
for defined functions and then for function calls and compare the
two lists.

This would catch any "static" code but would of course miss
run-time programmatic calls. To catch these you'd need to do something
at runtime so it would get much more tricky.

But maybe just the static code would suffice?
