Package: dict-freedict
Version: 1.1-4 (not installed)
Severity: important

dict-freedict *depends on* a slew of dictionary packages. Shouldn't it be
the other way `round?

IMO the usual situation should be that dict-freedict should be installable
as a stand-alone package, if needs-be. As matters stand, a user cannot
remove any number of dictionaries -- without removing dict-freedict itself.
IMO this is an unnecessary/needless, time-consuming, frustrating, illogical
situation -- with a simple solution.

dict-freedict does not provide any files (apart from copyright,
changelog, etc).  It's a meta package and its only purpose is to pull in
all other freedict packages.
