    WebSPHINX is a GPL project. A paper referenced at the websphinx site is:

    It's about SPHINX, apparently an earlier project.
    What's interesting is figure 2 in that paper, showing a TouchGraph-like
    image and an outline image. It turns out that much of the functionality of
    WebSPHINX could be duplicated using WebL, an open source (not GPL) web
    scripting language (first introduced to me by Adam Cheyer) and available at
    <note>research.compaq was originally a group that was at DEC</note>

    Take WebL and TouchGraph and you have WebSPHINX, methinks.
