When you do a LibreOffice build, there will be dependencies generated in
workdir/Dep/CxxObject -- a good general score for "god-objectness" would be
multiplying the number of code lines of a header with how often its filename
appears in workdir/Dep. There likely will be a few false positives (like string
class headers, that are justified to be included ~everywhere), but it should
give you a starting point.
