tools/uuiddeps/ is a Bash script (gross!) that identifies where uuids are 
defined and referenced. It landed in November 2002, has received only trivial
changes since (mass license changes and mass spelling fixes), and it doesn't
seem useful.
Summary: Remove tools/uuideps/, which is ancient and unused → Remove tools/uuiddeps/, which is ancient and unused
Attached file sample output
Here is sample output. (I had to change to instances of |[:space:]| to |[[:space:]]| for this to work.)

The output seems at least partly correct, though lots of files supposedly rely on |kNS_|, which seems bogus.

Given the unfixed script errors and the partly-incorrect output, it seems likely that nobody is using this script.
