AIUI it is here because the no-circular-dependency rule isn’t enforced

Furthermore, I’d be interested to know how to fix such a “shortcoming”
in our software. If both A and B depend on each other, A.postinst must
be executed before B.postinst, and vice versa. Please show me an
algorithm to do that that doesn’t rely on a timeshifting device.
