The yed package[1] (Java) might be a better alternative - the GraphML
XML it supports (among other inputs formats) does not a look that
scary and it's pretty versatile when it comes to automatic layout.
There also is an Eclipse integration. I never used the latter but yed
is a quite nice package. I am somewhat interested in the topic as well
so if my time permits I am willing to throw your dependency graph data
against a yet to be written converter (or XLST).

Best regards from Berlin,
