The only documentation I can found about the dependencies file format (the file
generated by -deps=xxx) is in bug 3122 (where the patch is), and it's not very
straightforward to understand unless you are familiar with D's EBNF syntax
description.

I think the format should be documented in the dmd man page, and probably the
website, etc. A couple of simple examples would be really helpful too, to
easily understand the format.
