Love that!  Still not sure how to interpret the graphs, but at least  
from that description, the less red on the graph the better :)

Is your analysis in any way similar to how PMD defines it's cyclic  
complexity metric?  I always thought that PMD did a good job of  
warning developers of potentially 'smelly' code.

How do you generate the data to build the graphs?  Do you have an ant  
task to analyse the ant code?! :)

Good stuff to see anyway, shame I'm not smart enough (nor  
conscientious enough to read your research page thoroughly) to  
understand all of it apart from the overview you so eloquently  
provided (quoted above)

Thanks for this
