This feature request is something to help figure out who is driving / using a given signal. In it's simplest terms could come up with some rules to figure out whether driver / load:
- Signal used in port defined as loads
- Left hand side of "=" driver
- Signal on right hand side of "=", treated as a load.

As I think about a possible implementation of this, which will completely get rid of the rule stuff above, is to use something similar to the "Find & Grep" dialog (Ctrl+H). Almost a "light-weight Find & Grep".

When invoked, where a given signal's drivers / loads are listed in this box, and the user can easily step between points where a given string is used.

    Admittedly the fatal flaw in the "Simplified Driver/Load" scenario above is when people do a search on something as generic as "reset".

    I'd like to see some way to trace a signal and list all flops generating
    the signal. I.e. push back through multiple levels of logic to the
    storage-element outputs.
    Otherwise, if there's multiple levels of logic, it can be very difficult to
    figure out which path of logic to keep pushing back along.

    Is this worthwhile to do within a single file, or primarily useful across design hierarchy?
