Broken is broken; it doesn't matter that it is trivial to fix, it would
have still wrecked his system and possibly disrupted business.

Additionally using --nodeps (or --force for that matter) should _always_
be a last resort option; and if you have to resort to using either of
them perhaps taking a step back and engineering a different solution
would be best.

Although CREW has been unable to uncover the demographic makeup of [these
companies], it seems safe to assume the vast majority of their employees
are not pregnant women, infants and children, young adults up to 24 years
old, and healthcare workers.
