Cyclic dependencies during multi-module compilation

In early access builds, multi-module compilation would fail if there was
a dependency cycle between the involved modules. I just realized that
that is no longer the case in 9.0.1 and later (up to Java 11).

I'm interested to learn the background for that decision? I considered
that check A Good Thing - why was it removed?

 so long ... Nicolai
