What you need is a dependency diagram. These can be part of flow charting for instructions or stand-alone for specifications. Some of them can get pretty hairy, though, so definitely a system administrator sort of thing, not usually suitable for end users.

Yeah, and when we advance from command-line-only, that
will become a possibility. Until then, I guess I'm
looking for suggestions as to the optimum presentation
(there are dozens of flow-chart options in Visio,
for example, as well as mind-map and other squiggly
ways to show things interacting) - what would be the
visual thingie that would most clearly show a bunch
of interdependencies.
