In that test, the user asks explicitly to install/upgrade package AND dep.
dep is unresolvable and could be skipped. remove unresolvable feature
used to allow that, but after phonon/qt fix, it is no longer be
However, if the user asked explicitly to upgrade dep and this cannot
be done, a failure in such a situation doesn't sound too bad.
And he can still install package if he wants with pacman -S package.

And in the -Su situation, maybe dep could be ignored or something ?

Anyway, if we are just talking about unresolvable situations, those
are just failure situations that should not happen frequently, and
when they happen, they should be fixed right away. So no big deal imo.

That said, I might have misunderstood something, and I didn't do any
real testing to confirm any of this :)
