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.
