Is there software the will automatically "fix" a very complex circular reference?

Before I do this time consuming project, does anybody know of any 3rd party software that will do something similar.
 
A week ago I spent some time fighting a circular reference in an old, large and messy workbook that I had abandoned long ago.
 
I chased precedent arrows, up down and sideways ruthlessly turning formulas into constants then gave up after a half hour.  (It was not an important workbook, and not worth the effort.)
 
But, last night I got an idea for an "Automatic" solution to this common problem.
I hope to develop a program to analyze any workbook and generate a SMALL set of recommendations like.
