Just wondering why this wasn't mentioned yet:  aren't circular dependencies 
causing more work for RM's, too, because the testing migration script can't 
handle dependencies loops autmatically in some/most/all cases?

From a graph algorithm point of view, if I'm not very mistaken, dependencies 
being guaranteed to be a directed graph instead of a generic graph should 
allow some simplifications/efficiency improvements in apt and other tools, 
too.

cheers
