grep -rn is great.  Use it all the time.

We actually split up usage from implementation via libraries and directories
(PHP).  It actually makes some things easier -- for example finding the
usage of a function vs finding the implementation.

It makes it easier to keep track of what does what.  You know that
everything in cgi-bin/ reacts to something in one way or another.  And you
know that everything in lib/ does something, and may or may not render
anything.  But you know that everything in lib/ cannot be exploited since
there is no code entry point -- just a bunch of functions and defines and

You also don't have a big clusterfuck of files to wade through.  That means
