If you wanted to take anything from jhc, I would happily dual licence it

the code for following dependencies is in Ho.Build (search for 'scc
modules' as that prints out the results).

it can be fed the HsSyn output from Language.Haskell.Parser directly in
the standard libs, but you probably want to prune out everything but the
import list parsing to not be messed up by extensions the full parser
can't handle.
