If you really want to, yes. The way the IntelliJ tool does it is that
it marks with colors the dependents and the antecedents of the
selected item.
Of course, this works best for people that don't suffer from color
blindness, but otherwise it's much more compact.

See http://erlide.sf.net/dsm1.png for a snapshot. Dependencies "flow"
from green to blue(=current) to yellow. Notice the red "bad guy" too.


Some people see things that are and ask, Why?
Some people dream of things that never were and ask, Why not?
Some people have to go to work and don't have time for all that.
