Default [pacman-dev] [PATCH] Improved 'dependency cycle' warning

Hi!
I did a -Su yesterday, and I got 4 dependency cycle warnings. I became curious
and I made this little patch (English clarifiaction needed).

So I found 4 dependency cycle in our repos; these are not necessarily bugs but
imho they worth mentioning:
glibc->tzdata->glibc
readline->glibc->bash->readline
coreutils->shadow->coreutils
db->coreutils->pam->db

Bye

Yes, I noticed exactly this earlier (because I'm using the testing repo) :
http://www.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch/2007-November/016149.html

I first thought about trying to make the debugging output of pacman more
verbose, but then I remembered the python script of stonecrest, so I used
that instead, by lazyness.
So thanks a lot for this patch, I think it's very helpful.

Btw, stonecrest later updated his script, but it still considered makedepends
like depends, which is not exactly what we want from pacman point of view.
So I hacked it in a bad way, and here are the final cycles I found :

You did what I tried and failed at when I upgraded everything to
testing packages. Thanks.
