Yes, that's how it's done.

Listing the dependencies of each module would lead to a much bigger output
(think of how often 'stdint' or 'unistd' would occur...); this is not what
most users want. I think we should be content to list every module just once.

This indentation feature was the outcome of this discussion:
Do you have a better idea for presenting the specified and the dependent
modules in a lightweight way?
