Good point, looks like we've missed that case.

In fact, Michał's first wording included a clause covering circular
dependencies, but then I persuaded him that it wouldn't be needed: ;-)

<mgorny> http://dpaste.com/592914/ like this?
<mgorny> should be simplest words I can think of
<ulm> mgorny: why "but see below"?
<mgorny> RDEPEND
<mgorny> the long parenthesis there :P
[...]
<ulm> I think that case cannot occur becasue a circular dependency cannot be
      broken in a place where there's a DEPEND too
<mgorny> hm, true I think
