No, see, there is a script for such a thing, 'bin/findtagopts', but it
works in offline mode.

I used it once to generate stubs, and I supposed the initial results would be
manually monitored for changes.

The thing is that the script can't possibly catch all uses (without becoming
a philosophy in itself), because at many places you have $opt->{$name} and
$name is almost never $name = 'somename' but comes from all kinds of sources;.
