For the people who refuse to vomit while watching a video,
here are a few screenshots of the visualizer applied on the linux
kernel source, the ocaml source, and the source of pfff itself:

The screenshots can not show the integration with Emacs though.  You'll have
to suffer and watch the videos for that.

If you don't have git, you can still download pfff by following this link:
