See __list_deps in pkg_info.cygpart

I don't know how we could traverse from module to package otherwise 
(other interpreted languages e.g. python, etc., generally have the same 

I don't see this a huge problem, as these dependencies would probably 
need to be installed to run tests, if the package has any.
