Package: python-enthoughtbase
Version: 3.0.3-2
Severity: important

Hello Debian Python Modules Team,

There is a circular dependency between python-apptools, python-enthoughtbase, python-traits and python-traitsgui:

python-apptools 	:Depends: python-traitsgui
python-enthoughtbase 	:Depends: python-apptools
python-traits   	:Depends: python-enthoughtbase
python-traitsgui 	:Depends: python-traits

This force all four packages to be installed at once.

Complex circular dependencies are known to cause problems during upgrade, so we
should try to get rid of them.

Imagine a large red swirl here.
