    This is actually a non-issue*, which CPANPLUS handles gracefully for your. Try it ;)

    The trick is to detect the circular dependency and take the appropriate action.
    In CPANPLUS' case, we add the path to one module's extract dir to @INC, then build & install the other, reset @INC, then build the first.
