Our goal is to keep Kotlin, the language, relatively small. Any and all the features that are added to the languages are designed in such a way as too allow library implementation of many abstractions on top of them. Detecting circular dependencies is a grand goal, but we don’t need languages support for that. It can be done on a library level at runtime that would help with these kinds of problems.
