It should be possible to specify exceptions on a per-package basis. I

would set a project to "direct", but to cater for packages using
static inclusion of a library (prog -> foo.a), one may need
"transitive" in case the library changes as a result of a rebuild

there is also other modes thinkable like "build on provides changes", but this

<value>local</value> <!-- like all, but ignore packages from other
repositories -->
