[Bug 780971] Re: openbabel (main) should not b-d on wxwidgets (universe)

OpenBabel is needed for a major feature in Kalzium (its molecular
editor). The Kubuntu team would very much like to keep this

Recently, Debian has added an openbabel-gui package to reflect the new
OpenBabel GUI from upstream. Unfortunately this means that there cannot
be any tricks to put this binary package in universe while keeping the
openbabel source packae in main.

To solve this, we could drop the openbabel-gui package from openbabel's
source package. If there is interest in keeping this package around
(there might not be since it is new), an openbabel-universe package
could be made that only ships this binary package. Of course interest in
the gui package is vital for this separate source package to work.

The Kubuntu team would very much prefer this solution to gimping
Kalzium's functionality.

(P.S. I'm also subscribing Kubuntu-Bugs instead of having it assigned,
since Kubuntu-bugs is nothing more than a bugmail funnel.)
