Graphical flavor browser...

    A couple of years ago, when I began using Symbolicses, I remember
    seeing a tool that allowed one to look at a flavor tree graphically.
    The name of a flavor would appear at the top of a window; then names
    of its components would appear under it, branching out across the
    screen.  This branching out would continue for each flavor and its
    components until the leaves of the tree were reached.  The tool had
    both horizontal and vertical scrolling, so that one could travel from
    branch to branch of the same tree using the slender, vine-like scroll

    I looked in the 8.0 source directory but didn't find the code for this
    tool.  (Maybe it's there, and I didn't see it; I now have to use
    glasses when looking at the screen.)

    Does anyone know about such a tool?

The documentation on format-graph-from-root has the code for a flavor tree browser.
It uses dynamic windows, so is scrollable and mousable, but does not label a frame
with the root flavor.
