FWLIW, I pretty much always write this as::

    msg = "depends level cycle: %s: dropping cycle for %s from %s"
    tup = cur_frame.atom, datom, cur_frame.current_pkg, "cycle"
    dprint(msg % tup)

But yes, occasionally I run into problems when the string still
doesn't fit on a single line. (Of course, I usually solve that by
shortening the string...) ;-)

I'm not *in*-sane. Indeed, I am so far *out* of sane that you appear a
tiny blip on the distant coast of sanity.
