This is because of limitations of the Maemo OS: The Ovi Store can only
deliver packages as isolated *.deb files to the device, and while the Maemo
package management can install those, it can not resolve their
dependencies simply because the code to do that isn't there.
Still, it's a precedent: We should not let that happen again with MeeGo.
