Generate module dependencies easily

Perl6 should ship with a simple utility that shows all modules a program
uses, and all modules those modules use.
Tom Christiansen proposed this in his perl6storm message:
=item perl6storm #0043
Write something that spits out module dependencies. Like makedep.
A tool that sources but doesn't run? a program/module then spits
out %INC might suffice. Can we autobundle with CPAN tricks?
This feature will be useful for quite a number of uses, including bundling
modules for distribution, and generating snapshots of large Perl programs.
This feature is probably best implemented through a standard module used as
a compiler backend.
