The compiler's --imports-graph option can be used to write out the
module dependency graph.

There's `--make-xml-doc' option that will write an XML representation
of a module with comments attached to various items.  (The intention
is to provide stylesheets that would transform this into documentation
of various formats, but we haven't done that yet.)
