Summary:
dose-ceve does not add edges to Essential:yes packages

Detailed description
When generating syntactic dependency graphs, package graphs or dependency cones with ceve, edges are not added to the set of Essential:yes packages even when --deb-ignore-essential is not given on the command line.

When generating a dependency cone, Essential:yes packages are part of the graph but because the edges to them are missing, it is unclear why they are part of the graph.

Similarly, when generating syntactic dependency graphs or package graphs, one would expect to find paths from any binary package to any Essential:yes packages but that is currently not the case.

I think it would make sense for these edges to be added to the graph except when --deb-ignore-essential is given on the command line.
