I ran into this with gimp and gimp-data. I'd do just the opposite
of what you said; wmakerconf should depend on wmakerconf-data,
but wmakerconf-data should just recommend wmakerconf.

I know it's rather silly, but people installing things without apt or
dselect can't ever seem to figure out that dpkg -i wmakerconf.deb
wmakerconf-data.deb will work.
