Well, dunno...:-)

Seriously speaking, I think that any word that could sound rude is,
especially with e-mail, best avoided in arguments. Back to the point:

Well, we probably agree on that matter. But my understanding about
this action is that it is not conducted as to eliminate these circular
dependencies at all costs (maybe the "getting rid" is not the best
choice of words for that).

Which indeed, does not yet make it clear to me about what could be
corrected in the circular dependency which console-common is involved
in, anyway.
