Is this packagable?  It sounds pretty interesting.

Probably. I could put it in cygutils, or standalone (like the new cygcheck-leaves package is a standalone utility).

Would it be crazy to generate this and make it available on the cygwin
web site?  Or would the dependency graph generation overload

The basic processing to generate a .dot file is pretty simple really; just string comparisons and hash manipulations. But as Ryan already pointed out, generating the actual graph in whatever format, is probably compute intensive.

My goodness - you have been busy! You've taken some hacky kludgy perl that I threw together in five minutes flat and turned it into a proper programme. Tip of the hat to you, sir...
