Tracing maven transitive dependencies

I frequently end up with indirect (transitive) dependencies to libraries that collide, different versions of the same library, etc.
It would be jolly nice to be able to selecf a library in the External Libraries list in the project navigator, and have Intellij tell me which library (which pom) that caused the dependency.
I'm sure this obvious function is already there, but I can't find it. Pointers appreciated.

Yup. That would be right up my street. Thanks, can't wait.

If the project consists of a parent POM file which then pulls in a load of child module POM files, can you use this view to pull out the conflicts across all POMs?  

That for me was the biggest problem with IDEA 9 - sorting out multi-module conflicts was a nightmare.
