Well, just because a feature is coded up doesn't mean that it was by design. If
the author made the wrong assumptions or missed something, then it's not design;
it's a bug.

> Hence, it can't be changed for BC reasons.

Is BC really an issue here? I don't see how anyone would rely on dependencies
being run multiple times. Once a dependency has been resolved, any further
exececutions of that dependency would be redundant. Remember, too, that this is
the command line we're talking about, so no scripts would be affected by
changing the semantics of the argument list.
