unsolvable circular dependencies and package splitting

I wanted to report a circular dependency bug in fontconfig, but
found the discussion


with apparent outcome: the fontconfig <->libfontconfig1 dependency
cannot be resolved.

If a circular dependency cannot be resolved because both packages
always need eachother, would policy not mandate that both packages
be merged?

Or maybe policy should be updated to allow circular dependencies
in cases that they are `unsolvable', and list those cases?
