 that sounds like the kind of thing that would cause nightmare
circular build dependencies for anyone porting to a new architecture
[which i'm considering doing: mvp from icubecorp].

 would that be correct - that if there *is* no "older version" it
would now be impossible to build both [or either] of the packages - or
am i mistaken?

 if it is correct, do you happen to know if they would cross-build, at all?
