Unconditionally. It's not in Debian, and users would have to remove all
the .png files as well before it actually used amanith. If they are that
determined they can de-patch it themselves.

Hmm.. OK, I guess dropping it to recommends solves both those problems.
I just don't like the idea of 'apt-get install fretsonfire' not giving
you any songs. The policy manual allows for circular depends, but the
debian-doc FAQ cites both directions of single dependency in different
cases. If they use aptitude then they get the recommends anyway.

I'll update svn.
