Ah, of course. I've changed the output to show dependencies before
uninstallables, when applicable. Checking trophy now says:
* trophy is waiting for clanlib
* clanlib is waiting for libvorbis
* Adding libvorbis makes 70 packages uninstallable on alpha: adonthell,[..]

I see. I guess that means this number is not very relevant for my script. I'll
display the size of the list instead, showing the number of packages made
uninstallable by adding the particular package we're looking at.
