No no, that's the problem. Everything depends on libCore. Including
libTransforms, libTarget, etc.

the code i've got in Passes right now depends on code in the target library
and in the transforms and analysis library. It can't do that from libCore
without creating a cycle.

So we have:

parsePassPipeline -> SROA (libTransforms) -> PassManager (IR / Core)

If we put parsePassPipeline in Core, we form a cycle.
