The current solution with circular dependency between libimobiledevice and usbmuxd is wrong. From  FS#42682  it's obvious that applications need usbmuxd, but we can do it in a better way.

I think the usbmuxd dependency of libimobiledevice should be removed, and usbmuxd should be added to the dependent packages:
- gvfs-afc (already depends on usbmuxd)
- ifuse
- libgpod
- upower

In this way we get a clean dependency chain without breaking applications.
This task depends upon

libimobiledevice is orphaned. ifuse is in [community]. libgpod is orphaned. Assigning to upower PM in vain hope (pls unassign yourself if not interested).
