I'm done with the non-heuristic part.

It seems there are not any trigger cycles when explicit triggers are involved
except for a self-trigger of wims-modules on itself. But self-triggers are now
not shown anymore.

I put the shell snippet here:


Patches and bugreports welcome.

I plan to add a heuristic part based on maintainer scripts once we have a
service that can be used to find all binary packages with maintainer scripts
that call a certain set of packages. Working on that as well :)
