looking a little bit more into this, I was very suprised....

there seems to be little/no tools in the git ecosystem that studies the 
dependencies between commits based on the file they modified and/or the 
conflict they would cause.

Is there any pre-existing tool to do that ? It can be done with git-log 
--name-only(the graph_git.pl is just a graphing layer above that command) but 
i'm suprised that I couldn't find anything else

And that was at the file level, is there any tool to help find what commits can 
be reordered without causing conflicts ? I am not sure if there is an easy way 
to extract potential conflict information from git...
