Or are you relying on a Dependencies client to either be using dep_ci_object (e.g., c1 and c2) or dep_metadata and dep_jobject (e.g., Graal) and the client ensures that ident values are unique for all DepValues added to a Dependencies object?

Sure. Just let me know if there’s any further input I can give. Thanks.
