is probably overkill, but they already produce the kind of statistics
needed, at least internally.  Cross-referencing Wa-Ei dictionaries
should be easy to do.  I'm pretty sure Jim provides several different
libraries for accessing EDICT files, as well as AJAX access or similar
to the WWWDict site.  I think there are also web spiders written in
Python, which I mention because I know there are Python bindings for
libxapian (and because I don't like PHP ;-).  WAIS is old enough
technology that I doubt there are bindings for many modern languages
(besides C), but I could be wrong.  Probably similar facilities are
available for your choice of poison, though.
