[TIP] McCabe Cyclomatic complexity

it seams almost impossible that the only thing out there that
calculates the McCabe cyclomatic complexity of Python code is this
hacky Perl script!

Then someone wrote a python wrapper for taking the hack a bit further:

I'm wondering: am I the only one looking for cyclomatic complexity of
python code? Or is everybody using the above perl script?
I took a look at the perl code, and it doesn't seem hard to port it to Python.
Anybody trying to use the interpreter parse tree? Or maybe that way
it's too complicated.
