Please note that skipping the nautilus plugin in dh_shlibdeps opens the
possibility that your nautilus plugin will be built against a different
version of one of these libs than nautilus itself is (like, say... gail or
eel2, both of which are currently going through soname changes in unstable),
and the skew would be unnoticed at the packaging level due to the lack of

I've seen maintainers move these shlibdeps for optional components into
Recommends before.  That still won't be enforced, but it's at least
greppable/parseable and gives the user some feedback at install time (at
