Cyclic dependencies hurt how long a project takes to compile. C# already warns about such things. When code is written to avoid cyclic dependencies the code compiles fast, and background scanning is also *MUCH* faster. When digging into a project with a large amount of source code it can be hard to detect which classes are causing a cyclic dependency, and sometimes one can actually accidentally introduce a cyclic dependency. It would be nice if javac could warn about such things. (Maybe with a parameter like -XdetectCyclicDependencies)
