As in my previous email in April on the topic: sim is a tool for
discovering textual repetition
http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/xmonad/2009-April/007722.html It
works reasonably well, but the output is much harder to read than it
needs to be because of the module headers.

As you can see, mailman mangled my email, so I'm forwarding the
original to you & Spencer (as the only 2 to reply).
