Bug#273734: education-common: con't fulfill the Recommends on !i386

You certainly have a good point here.  I'm not suggesting to remove
Recommends; I think the concept of Recommends is good.  However, there
is also a difference between Depends and Recommends.  I think what I'd
like to see is:

Depends -> grave bug
Recommends -> normal (or important) bug
Suggests -> minor

Recommends is stronger than Suggests but it doesn't completely break
the package so imho it shouldn't be RC.
