I can't find any loop on the level of binary packages. There are
inter-wined dependencies, though, that lead to sort of a loop on the
level of source packages: Imagine binary packages A1 and A2 being build
from source package A, while binary package B1 and B2 are build from
source package B. Now the dependencies are such that B2 depends on A2
which depends on B1 which depends on A1. Can such package relationships
cause problems?
