Sorry, but that's the way it is, and (for me and almost everyone else)
it's ok this way.

If you've got a database design that is that "poor" taht you have to
change column definitions quite frequently then you'll have to change
depending stored procedures (and views, and triggers) , too.

In short: the source of the problem aren't the dependencies it is that
you're changing field definitions (as it seems) too often.

Take care for a proper database design, thus minimizing these "problems".
Soemtimes it's easier to declare a field as a varchar (60) (even if you
think you need maximum 40 characters) than declaring it as a varchar(40)
and then experience that this won't fit...
