Severity: critical

Justification: breaks unrelated software

Dear Maintainer,

we have a SERIOUS depends issue going on with Jessie and multiarch(and any
spins based of Jessie).

I thought it was just skype being a dick. Its not.
Try and install wine and you have the same scenario.

What it boils down to is this:

The installable package demands libav.
Libav demands every other libav package.
ASoundlibs are demanded.

This demands (generic) openCL be installed, breaking any proprietary video
setup you may have(or at least in part).These packages have no need for either
libav, nor openCL.

Only in rare cases is OpenCL needed. The wine apps that may need it, cannot run
it due to other requirements.Skype doesnt need it.

This was reported prior to DECEMBER 2014.
It is now Feb 2016. The issue has not been resolved YET.

This needs to be fixed.
