In your original report you did not provide evidence supporting your 
claim.  You later pointed to subvertpy as an example, but that bug has 
apparently been fixed by tightening a dependency on python-support which 
indicates the root of the problem not being in CDBS.

Please provide evidence, as I requested yesterday!

I still fail to understand what exactly is wrong in how CDBS works 
currently:  We need a concrete case to investigate.

Kind regards,
