I had something like this  - it was crude but had functionality not 
unlike Performers graph viz tool ,however I stored relevant info in 
osg::Node, Not getting too far into implementation details - I had to 
run two nodeVisitors - One to gather info on the scenegraph and the 
other to build and display it nicely on the screen.  Pic is from an 
earlier OSG 2.1.9 version, haven't altered 2.8.0 to cater for graph
