Please, look at the discussion in bug 601970
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=601970). Relese team
rejected the change in dependencies. And I tend to agree. It's more
reasonable to make foo2zjs not to require tk8.4 and all X stuff. It's
a printer driver, so it's supposed to work without X. The graphical
configuration utility isn't vital for its work, so it's better to
downgrade it to 'suggests'.
