Sorry, only now that I have time to look into this. So what we are
going to do before implementing the behaviour for
resolve(strict=False) is to change the behaviour of
resolve(strict=True) from --canonicalize-existing to --canonicalize?
Is there any time left because we are in RC1 already? Should we
postpone it to 3.5? But then, we'll have backward compatibility
