Well, Ivy eats its own dog food because it uses Ivy to resolve its
dependencies, but it doesn't declare a dependency on itself to do that,
because it wouldn't be useful, since we need something else than Ivy to get
the Ivy we use to do the rest of the build. So it's not authorized to have a
module depending on itself. But why do you need such a weird thing?
