Get the patch named "import James Webb's deps.pl" from this repo:


You can browse it here, but of course if you textually copy deps.pl instead of
pulling the patch through darcs then we'll be susceptible to doppleganger
conflicts later.




P.S.  Did I mention it doesn't work with current darcs?  Something trivial
changed in the UI and deps.pl is waiting for "ynWvxqadjk" to be sent to stdout,
or something.  Not sure.  Please fix it and send me the patch.
