Possibly. And - as a clarification of the policy, really - I'd vote for having one of the the next dpkg and apt releases strictly enforcing dependencies, making packages with circular dependencies uninstallable. (But, in the spirit of good communication, this should probably be announced on d-d-a, or at least by bugs on all affected packages.) cheers -- vbi -- A la fuerza, ni los zapatos entran.
