ACK. Having separate packages for public libraries and utils
which just happen to use these libs should be the default case.
Not just because of circular deps - which, in 99.99% have 
absolutely _no_ technical reason, beside certain people's mental 
lazyness (at least that's what my about 20yrs swe experience 
shows up ;-o) - but also a matter of clean sw design.

This should start at the source, so if upstream doesnt want to
fix this, let's fork. (i'm hereby volunteering as maintainer).
