There was a flaw of logic, as it were.
It should be something around 3000-10000. I presume.

I am trying to count any package that Depends, or Build-Depends,
defining that relation as a joint-depends. 
And I am recursively counting those which eventually do a 
j-depends on any package. 

So, if cygnus-stylesheets depends on docbook, 
and gcc build-depends on cygnus-stylesheets, 
gcc j-depends docbook.

This relationship is what "broken dependency" is about
in testing distribution, I presume.

So, if docbook is completely broken in some way, it
will eventually break gcc build.
