Having tried this sort of thing before, I think that your suggestion is a good one.

Figuring out which modules are being used is an extremely difficult task (given that some of your modules may be included at run-time) and even the best solutions for walking a codebase and discovering module usage don't quite cut it.

    I was thinking about this too. It sounds like a tall order.

    Maybe it's unlikely to be happening in the OP's particular code base, but it's entirely possible to require an arbitrarily-named file that itself is requiring modules and doing things with them. And eval could be used in a similar manner. Hard to say where code may be coming from.
