I don't know - what deps do they need?

The top of the list though is the deps such that Adobe Flash works out
of the box.  On i386 this would ensure we pull in libflashsupport.  On
x86_64 we'd also need to pull in 32 bit libpulseaudio and some other
things, I believe?

Regardless, the point is that we need to actually make choices about
what's included in the desktop install, figuring out the tradeoffs,
rather than punting it to users with incomprehensible questions.
