http://the.earth.li/~noodles/pathfind.html might be what you're looking

http://biglumber.com/ users know where to find an alternate site. :)

Google for cache:www.chaosreigns.com/code/ and other pages or see
what http://www.archive.org/ has.

I asked similar questions before but didn't receive a reply either, IIRC.

The keyanalyze preprocess.keys file doesn't have uid strings in it,
currently. I still haven't used sigtrace, but I generate pgpring -f -S
listings each time I run my intermediate keyanalyze reports. That
output was 653,859,245 bytes on the 17th, but compresses nicely -
under 200MB. (Removing the fingerprints helps too.) I can also see
about providing xdelta diffs for the data.
Alternately, I will _consider_ creating the sigtrace databases with
each keyanalyze report, depending on the complexity.
