Suppose you take over an existing TYPO3 installation.

Q:What steps would you do to find out whether an extension is needed
at all?

- ok, disable it and see if the site is still working at all. But that
doesn't solve the problem of course.

Search all code for some PATTERNs like in:
   grep -ri PATTERN  --include=*.php  *

What PATTERN would you search for in PHP files?
And in Typoscript file?

What else would you do?
