vulture - Find dead code

Vulture finds unused classes, functions, imports and variables in your 
code. This helps you cleanup and find errors in your programs. If you 
run it on both your library and test suite you can find untested code.

Due to Python's dynamic nature, static code analyzers like vulture are
likely to miss some dead code. Also, code that is only called
implicitly may be reported as unused. Nonetheless, vulture can be a
helpful tool for higher code quality.


* fast: static code analysis
* lightweight: only one module
* tested: tests itself and has complete test coverage
* complements pyflakes and has the same output syntax
* supports Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.x

This release features 3 changes made by "Google summer of code" student 
Rahul Jha:

* Automatically include whitelists based on imported modules
   (thanks @RJ722).
* Add --version parameter (thanks @RJ722).
* Add appveyor tests for testing on Windows (thanks @RJ722).
