Files dependencies not shown in output of dependencies task

When defining file dependencies like

dependencies {
    compile files("a.jar", "b.jar")

when calling

gradle dependencies

these dependencies are not shown.

Is there a reason why they are not shown?

I asked the same question a while ago:

It’s a known limitation, and will get fixed once we get to it.

Ok thx for mentioning. I will watch GRADLE-1332
