OK I can see where that'd be pretty useful for people with smartphones and
such.  Can I please ask, though, that if it's added to ubuntu-desktop, it be
the type of dependency where removing it doesn't also remove the
ubuntu-desktop meta-package?  Those kind are annoying, since you uninstall
an app that you don't want, then 6 months later it's upgrade time, so you
have to reinstall the app (while the servers are being super-duper slow due
to everyone upgrading) and ubuntu-desktop before you can upgrade, and then
you remove them again right after.
