There will be a new crossreference utility in the next Erlang/OTP to be
delivered at the end of Sept
(and planned to be released as Open Source a short while later).
This tool can among other things indicate references to non existing external

warnings about apply dependencies, but it can not detect  which functions that
are actually called
with the apply.
