It wasn't a dependence (which IS an important bug), but only
a recommendation. I got a bug about a suggestion! I don't think
this is an important bug.
That dselect treats recommends so highly is a bug in dselect,
not in the packages which make recommendations.
Again there was no discussion of this mass bug-filing
campaign on debian-devel, as Debian's policy and manuals
require. (Unless I missed it and the discussion, which I doubt.)
