A few other thoughts...

The xml report has almost everything you might need, so if you have some
xslt skills, I think it's a good way to go. But to get this report you need
to call resolve, and maybe you don't need to actually download the
dependencies? If you just need information about your transitive
dependencies without downloading artifacts, this is only possible with java
code. Indeed with java you can call resolve and say: "do not download
artifacts". The RepReport task makes use of this feature. But the Ivy API is
not very stable, and the way you will handle this is likely to require
maintenance if you later upgrade. The xml report has no such problem.
