While investigating an issue about upgrading GIMP with a PPA, I noticed something unexpected: when installing GIMP from the Software Boutique, it also installs extra packages like gimp-gmic (a collection of filters), gimp-plugin-registry (a collection of plugins) and mplayer (??? why the hell is it installing mplayer?), maybe others.
Is that normal or is there something wrong here? I'm especially surprised to see mplayer in the list but I guess it might be due to cascading dependancies because of another extra package.
EDIT: oh, it also installs gimp-gap, which is a plugin to create animations with GIMP. I assume it's why it needs mplayer.
