The script considers if things are a valid candiate on their own merits
but assesses other things like dependencies separately - if look at
something like powertweak this is explicitly stated:
powertweak (0.99.4-19 to 0.99.5-1)
Maintainer: Mark Brown
39 days old (needed 10 days)
Invalidated by dependency
Depends: powertweak glibc (not considered)
Valid candidates can also be held up for other reasons - for example,
because they would break other things.
