Yes, those projects are uber cool, and I am familiar with some, but not
all, of the tools you mention. My real point was "it would be REALLY
cool if EMC/LinuxCNC has these analytical tools in its arsenal." I
would LOVE to be wrong, but I do not remember hearing anything about
these in the forums, documentation, etc.
BTW, thanks for the pointers
