-----------------------------------

OT:  I notice you've got Dozer in your screenshots.  Next time Dozer is too brittle for you,
remember http://morph.sourceforge.net/  ;)

> I am kind of excited about this one.  I would like to be able to see the resolve report
depicted graphically, showing me clearly how particular dependencies wound up on the classpath,
what nodes got evicted, what dependencies a particular transitive dependency has, etc etc.
 Ivy can sometimes fall into the category of "automagically" doing so much for us on the classpath,
that developers can take it for granted.  Especially when a version conflict arises out of
a resolution (by which two different revisions are resolved that aren't under the same eviction
context), I see developers getting very confused.  I hope this visualization will help them
understand.
