I was chatting briefly with Patrick about this at Devoxx. For detecting 
split packages on a class path then I agree, it feels like another tool 
because it doesn't have to do any static analysis of the classes. More 
generally, I expect there will be many ideas and suggestions for things 
that jdeps could do. If we get to the point where it has an API then at 
least some of these ideas could be developed as tools that use the API.
