is it really necessary to have gnome *depend* on software center? Honestly, I
find it awefull and not very Debian-like (whatever that means, it's just a
feeling to me).
I mean, we already have synaptic installed and all this update-notifier and
-manager stuff. Furthermore, software-center depends on the bloated app-
install-data package. So please, could you move it to Recommends at least?
While we are at it, I think that update-manager, software-properties-gtk and
software-center do all provide redundant functionality with respect to
