Run these 2 commands:

reverse-depends src:ubuntu-ui-toolkit
reverse-depends -b src:ubuntu-ui-toolkit

Based on a quick look at the output, it looks like it's basically
Unity 8 and the checkbox app.

I think it's generally accepted that Unity8 will be removed from
artful soon. But I'm not sure what's going on with checkbox. Maybe the
Qt version used before the conversion to QML can be revived?
