Unless ABI/API is changed I don't see reasons to rebuild packages that depend
on updated library. In case of ABI/API changes will be changed
(one indication)
and versions of all dependent packages will be dumped recursively
(second indication).

Broken code generators and similar:
 - broken dependent packages will be rebuilt.
 - dependent packages that were built successfully in the past will
NOT be rebuild
    unless their versions dumped.
