Any update on GRADLE-427 "dependsOn doesn't respect dependency order"?

A lot has happened since the last comment on the JIRA from the gradle team. Any update on how a potential solution might look and on whether some solution will make it into the 1.0 release?

I’m sure we will make gradle solve the use cases that drive this issue in 1.0. The way to implement the use cases is not decided yet. If you want share your view (or better: the use case) - feel free to comment on the ticket.
