[cdi-dev] Possible cycle with ProcessBeanAttributes only for enabled beans

You cannot just fire ProcessBeanAttributes the moment you run across
Bravo. You need to figure out whether it is specialized or not first
(which means processing Charlie). This is not new at all - this was the
case since CDI 1.0 with ProcessBean.
As for the extension case the moment an extension vetoes BeanAttributes,
you should check whether that action makes any previously disabled beans
enabled. If so, fire ProcessBeanAttributes for them. Repeat untill all
beans are processed.
