That's clever. Do you typically do that for many classes or do you save it for when you come across a specific class that's unclear to you?

@ratchetfreak I wouldn't say that in such absolute terms. A tool could isolate code that's always called, for example. Or only run many stack levels deep.

Thanks @Dima. Doxygen is fantastic at handling some of that. (I didn't want to steer the answers by dropping that one tool name that I know of). Kudos on the level-headed "human interaction" component as well. :)
