I am /not/ screening this one for the moment because I think the current
behavior merits a bit of discussion. Another, perhaps better way to fix this
would be to introduce a change of behavior for --ask-deps so that, for
amend, it ignores the old dependencies instead of only adding to the
existing set. This would allow users to remove unwanted dependencies, which
is currently not possible except by unrecording and then recording again. If
we agree on this we should document the new behavior in the help text for
the amend command.

  * don't offer already depended on patches with --ask-deps
  This reverts an unintended behavior change introduced by the fix for
  issue2618: the patches we already explicitly depend on are offered again.
  This is done by adding the old dependencies to the anonymous patch before
  filtering out its dependencies.
