I like the name of the tool, and I think the new proposed options looks 
much better.

The only option that I suspect might confuse people is -d, I'm not sure 
that this is really needed.

A minor observation but I wonder if -v/--verbose should be something 
else.  The sub-options are good, it's just that -v is really is 
selecting the level that the dependencies are printed (and -v:summary is 
less verbose than the default).

Otherwise I think this will be really useful to have.
