CudfAdd.cone ignores essential packages

Detailed description
After parsing a Debian package list into a cudf universe, I expect that a function that is described as "Compute the depenency cone of a list of packages" would actually give me said cone without neglecting the implicit dependency on Essential:yes packages that all packages in the universe are supposed to have.

Maybe this can just be fixed by updating the documentation of CudfAdd.cone?

On the other hand, should a user of the dose3 libraries have to know of how the implicit dependency on essential packages is encoded? (i.e. not as explicit cudf dependencies)
