The dependencies shown are 'interface' dependencies between git repos.
for each git repo 'R':
for each file 'F' in 'R/include/boost':
if 'F' #includes a file in git repo 'D':
draw an edge from 'R' to 'D'
I did add some special cases for mplcore, which no longer exists, etc.
Checking the files in 'R/src/' in addition does not change much. In
particular for serialization, it does not add any edges.
I think the rules for Peters tool are similar, so my output should simply be
a graph version of the same information he's producing.
