Identifying Un-used functions and commands

I think he wants it the other way around, identifying handlers and 
functions that aren't called by any other handler. I've done this, but only 
one at a time, by searching for the handler name across all open stacks. If 
the only occurrence is the handler itself ("on/function whatever", ) then 
it's unused.

The method here would probably be to get a list of all handlers and 
functions and then do a global search for instances of each. If there's one 
or more that isn't the handler declaration, it's used.
