Allow circular dependency for singletons. #16

With this change I added support for circular dependencies (at least singletons). I solved it by adding the newly created object to the _storageCache before wiring with all its dependencies. This way if the dependency references back, it will get the already created object. Before, it ended up in an endless loop because it was added to the cache afterwards.

The change is covered in the CircularDependenciesSpec.m. In order to have cross-referencing test objects I had to create another fixture file (CircularDependencyFixture).

Ah, yes. This was on a TODO of mine. Thanks for doing it. I'll merge the request.

I've added issue #17 to deal with resolving all dependencies before notifying an object that it is ready when dealing with circular dependencies.
