I have a method plugin A - way too big - so I decide to factor out a
part into method plugin B

B references A no problem

However some parts of A (custom categories) still reference content now
residing in B.

It seems not possible to have method plugin A reference B ?
There is no checkbox in A allowing me to choose the new method plugin B
as a referenced plugin

what to do ?

ok, the system avoids circular dependency loops - which is probably a
good thing (the avoidance that is)

-> becomes apparent when you 'force' the reference by editing the
plugin.xmi manually which is also something that you should 'avoid' I
guess ;)

Anyway I'm gonna re-think my setup :)
