We could suggest them (or depend on the media-tags one and
suggest/recommend the archive one) perhaps?

I would really rather not have mousepad installed (preferably anywhere
but hey).

aptitude and dselect will bring in recommends so I don't think
recommends is a bad idea here.

Oh right.  To talk about 4.4.  Well ok.  We can leave that til the time
though.  I think it needs to be in unstable before we think about that.

(well and released and tested first :))

I'm not that unhappy about shipping an RC in etch.  Upstream don't tend
to ship many terrible bugs.

I want to look at getting this in and then doing another bug triage
though I'm not sure when I'll have time.
