Well I suppose a first pass would simply be to count all occurences of
String values who's value matched a field name, but how deep do you
go looking for fields - probably just in the user's code not the libraries
even though you would then miss lots of PropertyChange fires and
all the named properties inside Swing. 

Could your code do the simple string == fieldname scan?  That would
under-count, but it would be a start.
