What would be super useful is a tree representation, like so:

  + pkg-config
  + libgc
  |- pkg-config […]
  + gmp
  |- m4
  + libffi
  + bash-minimal

(With the right Unicode characters, of course.  :-))

The trick here is to identify already-visited sub-graphs, like
pkg-config above, and to not repeat them (for example, add ellipses as
in the example above).
