    Well, it's possible that the correct approach is a mixture.

    Automatically do the trivial cases (recursive selects, dependencies
    that are simple or of the form "x && y" etc), and warn about the cases
    that aren't trivial (where "not trivial" may not necessarily be about
    fundamentally ambiguous ones, but just "complex enough that I won't
    even try").

    Maybe a full "solver" is unnecessary, for example, but just a simple
    "automatically enable the direct dependencies and scream when it's not
    simple any more" would take care of 99% of the common cases, and then
    warn when it needs some manual help.

    So it's not a strict "one or the other" issue. The solution could be
    "some of both".
