Interesting idea for a source code transform that can compute the directed
graph of function dependencies and serialize them in an intelligent order,
grouping connected function close to each other.

(1) Anyone know of any good directed graph clustering and serialization
algorithm that might be appropriate for this?

(2) How would we handle semantically related but dependency unrelated
functions, such as start & stop, push & pop, add & remove, etc.?

Cheers,
