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.
