> The output of mvn dependency:tree would be more useful to me if it was in a format that is machine readable.  I would like to create some tooling to be able to easily determine what is causing a particular jar to be included.
> for example:
> >mymvntool -why org.springframework:org.springframework.beans:3.0.5
> org.springframework.beans-3.0.5 is being *dragged* in by: my.otherproject.core:1.1
> %end of search
> another use:
> >mymvntool -makeexclusionfor org.springframework:org.springframework.beans:3.0.5
> <exclusions>
>  <exclusion>
>    <groupId>org.springframework</groupId>
>    <artifactId>org.springframework.beans</artifactId>
>  <exclusion>
> </exclusions>
> or even:
> >mymvntool -makeexclusionfor org.springframework:*:3.0.5
> this would pickup all the included jars in the project and build exclusions for them.
> It may have been dumb to pick spring as the exclusion resource, but this is just an example.  having xml output would be valuable to me and probably others too.
