I have a feature I would like to suggest / request for Synaptic : the ability 
to display and handle packages'  "Recommends:" field.

For instance, installing ark would bring a dialog that suggests the 
installation of arj, ncompress, rar, unzip, zip and zoo, if not already 
present on the system. 

If Synaptic's developers are interested to implement this feature I am willing 
to help out with the UI design by posting on this is list and maybe tweaking 
with the .glade files. That's the most I can do with the spare time I've got.

By the way I really like Tom Kelly's idea to link to the changelog of the 
package, like the new is doing. The content of the 
changelog could be downloaded into a new tab between « Installed Files » and 
« Expert » in the Package Control view, for instance.
