Bug#852646: task-xfce-desktop: please recommend atril not evince

Control: clone -1
Control: reassign -1 atril
Control: retitle -1 Remove the dep of atril on mate-desktop-common


Is the dependency of atril on mate-desktop-common necessary?

If not, could you please consider removing it?  This would let
the xfce maintainers ship atril instead of evince in task-xfce-desktop  :)
