A library recommends synaptic? That just sesems downright stupid.
That is not where I would have expected to see that dependancy. I guess
it provides a widget that calls synaptic, so someone thought it would
make sense to have synaptic installed even though many other widgets in
the package might be perfectly useful with out it.
I think at most synaptic deserves a suggests in that case.
