upstream advise page about circular dependencies (bootstrapping)


it's the third time now that I'd like to write a mail to an upstream project 
and kindly ask them not to depend on themselves to build. It would be helpful 
to have a page like the UpstreamGuide[1] that shortly explains why it is 
undesirable for distributions or in general if a software needs itself to 
The DebianBootstrap page[2] in the wiki is not short and general enough for 
this purpose.

[1] http://wiki.debian.org/UpstreamGuide
[2] http://wiki.debian.org/DebianBootstrap

It would be nice if such a page could be initiated by people mostly affected 
by circular dependencies.
