This is interesting to me--I wanted to look into shipping certain boost
libraries separately in Fedora. Currently we have a huge boost-devel
that ships the whole boost/ subtree. That made sense back in 1.33
timeframe, but it makes less and less sense with every new release.
Unfortunately the Boost dependency graph is as huge a hairball as I was
afraid :-/

[Actually, more useful to me would be something scriptable. All that
GUI stuff, frankly, is juts a distraction to me--though it does produce
nice graphs :) (BTW, did you use graphviz, or is that custom-coded?).]

Do you plan to make this tool open source?
