Plugin suggestion (possibly Metrics Reloaded enhancement)

I just came across this article and it seems that it wouldn't be too hard to implement such visualization in IDEA. I imagine it could be quite useful for getting the big picture of a large project. It would be also great if it provides easy access to the move class and move static member refactorings.

Oooh, that is pretty. An vastly easier to implement than any of the visualizations I had previously played around with. Is there OpenAPI for accessing dependency rules? This could quite rock.

By the way, I'd like to take this opportunity to tell any Lattix-DSM marketing people who happen to google this that there is nothing quite so lame as product websites where you have to call or e-mail to get a quote. I've gone to your website. That should be all the interaction you need to be able to close a sale, and in this day and age, it's all you're likely to get. If you want more information from me, put up a forum, and I'll be more than glad to give you an earful (just ask JetBrains).

Nice looking product, though. If you'll excuse me I'm off to clean-room reverse engineer it.
