Now that we have non-recursive dependencies, we should only bump
revisions for packages directly depending on a given one (in this
case, opencdk).

Yeah, it may happen that some packages that depend on a package that
depends on opencdk break too.  But if this happens, the former package
was missing a direct dependency on opencdk, so it should be corrected.

Isn't it?
