Attached is a simpler version, after I realised that the 'known' set
isn't actually needed. Added a few more comments as well.

I don't think an endless loop is a possibility, because only
dependencies that aren't in 'unmet' already are added to the todo
queue, so each package can make it into the queue only once.
