Aj.. You do know that APT has included such a function for quite some time

apt-cache unmet -i

will print out all packages which cannot be installed due to unment
important dependencies (omit -i and it considers suggests/recommnds too)

That said, anyone want to voleteer to make an API wrapper for libapt-pkg
-> perl/python? There seems to be alot of interest in such things now.
