And this begs the question, why does gnome-desktop-environment
*depend* on something like sound-juicer? Shouldn't that be a
"recommends"? What if I prefer to use a different CD ripping app?
Why should I *have* to install sound-juicer?
And this same question applies to a lot of other packages. Often if I
try to upgrade a bunch of stuff, I can't do it, because one little
package (one that I don't even use) that something big like GNOME or
KDE depends on, isn't available in the version that KDE or GNOME
depend on, so apt wants to remove *all* of GNOME or KDE. But I don't
even use that little package! And I'm not talking about libs, I'm
talking about apps.
