Maybe you can just drop this behavior for now, because this is indeed
inconsistent with resolvedeps. Then if we want to reintroduce some
kind of handling of multiple satisfiers in the future, it should be
done for both explicit targets (which is currently done in frontend)
and dependency resolving (in backend).
