Well I think the downside to the current dependency graph generation
is that it is dependent on "me" including the proper depends in the
"module.cmake" file. I was looking at the "bcp" tool and thinking that
this might be a better way of determining the dependency graph of
boost. It would be interesting to add code to the bcp tool to generate
a ".dot" file based on its scan of the boost and libs directories.
