IIRC, David Gümbel's company ITOMIG [1] makes this kind of assesments, based 
on technology developed during David's diploma thesis [2]. Unfortunately the 
thesis is in German and the only whitepaper I found is German as well. Still, 
David might be available for some suggestions, he should be reading this 
list. (Also, Stefan should be able to read it ;) )
