Finding explicit function/command calls seems like it should be a fairly straightforward task. However, the "do" keyword can also be a source of function/command calls, which complicates matters a wee bit. You'll also need to evaluate all the non-cleartext components that can go into "do" statements—
do (VariableName)
do (the WhateverProp of ThisObject)
do (line 4 of fld "ThisField")
—etc etc etc.
