dead handler detector?

Hi Phil,
I assume you're trying to find handlers that are not referenced by any
other handlers?  I started on a stack a while back to do the reverse of
that - cross reference where handlers are called from but it would show you
which ones are not called from anywhere.

I'll have to search round for it because I kinda left it alone in favor of
doing other things but let me know if this is what you're looking for and
I'll see if I can find it and see what state it's in.
