i think that's not the point.
according to _debian_ policy (and ubuntu is a debian derivative) [1],
there is a clear definition of what should "Depend" and what should only
and "Recommends" is for "packages that would be found together with this
one in all but unusual installations".

the package manager should install "recommended" packages unless
explicitely told so otherwise (e.g. the user _requested_ to use
i no of no package manager that _defaults_ to "--no-install-recommends".
if you have found one and it is the default in oneiric, than i think you
found a bug in the package manager, so you should report a bug for that
rather than pd-extended.
