Really? I very much would like to see this graph. If this is available
somewhere I think it would be nice to show it somewhere on the web!
Besides being a nice eye-candy it would support those in need for these
kind of arguments.
I would have volunteered in providing this graph, but unfortunately I
must have been doing something completely wrong when I was trying to
generate such a graph on my own. It reminded me very much of the wool
ball my cat likes to play with than a well structured graph. :-(
