not quite: your module either dump it all as a pair of parent/child
or dump one-level up and down of a given module
I need all up from a given module...
for example with svx mine give: (-u -p svx)
the python program give: (grep filtering lines where svx is on the left)
So for instance I miss the fact that scripting and reportdesign depend
(indirectly) on svx ...
That being said, I'm sure your python could have been taught to do
that... my point being that it does not 'already do that'.

That's why I couldn't find it :-) I haven't been in the 'build' repo
in months... I actually had to dig to even find one on my machine :-)

There are plenty of stuff to learn, more than I will ever be able
to... so I have to choose my battle.
Here I just needed to quickly scratch an itch, not turn it into a project....

Sure... although over-kill is a bit strong. Amusingly these 2 programs
have exactly the same number of lines (383) :-)
