That's a possibility. But we can also do like for qt4: since
accessibility is now supposed to be enabled by default, we could
make libgtk2.0-0 itself depend on libgail-common, i.e. the toolkit
itself makes sure it has the tools to make itself accessible. That
way, libgail-common will get installed whenever a gtk2 application is
installed for some reason.

Libatk-bridge doesn't actually depend on libgail18, so we can remove its
dependency on libgail-common, provided that libgtk2.0-0 depends on it.
