Thanks for the suggestions.
Both apt-cache and the program suggested by Padraig appear to rely on
dotty to work out the dependency tree.
Since I need to be able to manipulate the output and most likely be able
to dynamically determine what to do based on what dependencies exist I
don't think they are the solution.
Interesting to see how they structure the data though.
If your familiar with the "equery" tool from gentoo, it provides a
similiar capability to what I'm looking for. Looks like I'll be writing
from scratch so :)
