is usually applied to packages.
When applied to objects, it doesn't seem to hold. Some ObjectOriented
practitioners think that classes are a kind of packages, so the AcyclicDependenciesPrinciple

- See the Boolean class.
Boolean is subclass of Object, but Object uses Boolean.
In Java the same occurs among Object and String.
