Which dependencies? select was more intended to select symbols without a
prompt (it's dependency would be simply 'n'). The selected symbol can also
have multiple prompts, how should these dependencies be merged?
The current select is intentionally simple, so the calculation is
straightforward. Anything more complex I have to completely rethink the
behaviour between depencies and selects, e.g. something like this:

A ---selects----> C ---selects----> D
B --depends on--> --depends on--> E

If you want to change the behaviour of select how will it change the
behaviour of the other dependencies and selects?
I have some ideas for that, but I didn't had the time yet to sit down and
completely think it through and a few other changes are more important.
