Trying to think of a workaround for , I thought I'd duplicate
DMD's lookup rules. That's daunting in itself, but I quickly found it
impossible. JSON output omits import statements from modules.

An IDE could use the list of imports to detect when code is silently relying on
another module's imported symbols due to bugzilla 313/314, or to find
unnecessary import statements. And, of course, to work around bugzilla 4477.
It's also a cheap way for an IDE to support incremental builds rather than
using dmd -deps, making it essentially free to do incremental builds once you
have syntax highlighting.
