That's a cool resource! (the general dependencies folder there)

Are you removing indirect dependencies before generating the graphs? I 
think it is valuable to actually consider the graphs *without* such 
removal being done. I think doing so hides the true complexity of the 
dependency situation and can therefore be very misleading. At least I 
recall the true dependency graphs of something like zope.formlib look a 
lot more hairy than this:


I highly recommend the use graphviz's sccmap to detect clusters of 
strongly connected components. Circular dependencies are one of our true 
problems and this tool can help you identify them.

It would be nice if we could have a dependency checking service that 
could inform us when we're going in the wrong direction; in particular 
when we create strongly connected clusters.
