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 -- vbi -- Computers can never replace human stupidity.
