That does look unnecessary, indeed. In wheezy, texpower depends (among
others) on


In sid it is


For texlive-latex-* it is right to go from recommended to extra since
the actual texpower code now resides in tl-latex-extra. However, I
think tl-fonts-recommend is still sufficient for texpower.

@David: Simple workaround should be to mark texlive-latex-extra as
"not automatic" and remove texpower. That way the dependency
texlive-fonts-extra is removed, while you can still use texpower.
