Yes, mine already does that.  It has a single module mode that lets
you dump dependency info for individual modules.

It's in the build repository, under scratch/build-analysis-tools,
named check-deps.py.

It's a bit disappointing.  That will only give you a short-term gain.
We write quite a few tools in python in this project, so there is a
benefit to learning python.  Plus, for tasks such as this, we are much
better off writing tools in scripting languages, either perl or
python.  C is over-kill for stuff like this.
