Nice. :)  Wishlist request: could you have it tally the total number of
packages whose transition depends on each package in the list, and print
that number next to the source package name?  Better yet, could the list be
sorted by this number? :)  That would certainly be helpful in identifying
which packages should be given the highest priority.
