method new( )
Creates the object, downloading and filling it with information. Error output goes to
hash with module names, dependencies and URLs.
hash with module names and the number of other modules it depends on.
hash with module names and its dependencies.
method river-scores --> Hash
Computes the "river-score" by looking at all dependency chains and giving a score according to the position. That is, if there's this dependenci chain
Foo → Bar → Baz
Foo will have a 0 score for appearing in the first position, up to Baz which will have score equal to 2. The total score of every module is computed by adding all scores.
It chokes on circular references. Right now they are blacklisted.
