Also "systems-blocked-exclusively" are systems which have no other failing dependencies
except for the current system.

For example, ironclad has 120 systems blocked exclusively. This means if we fix ironclad
the 120 systems may be fixed (Unless they have their own problems, which will be revealed
in this case; but all the dependencies for these systems will be fixed).
