When I installed the new package, I ended up with a non-functional tree. 
Installing libjs-jquery and libjs-jquery-cookie "solved" my issue, by 
making the javascript foldable tree work.

With libjs-jquery-cookie and libjs-jquery installed, the tree works. 
Without them installed, I get a non-working html tree - although I can 
see in the source that the links are there, clicking on the tree 
elements does not switch the main frame to display the correct graphs. I 
tested this in Firefox and Chrome to make sure it wasn't just a browser

If it's intended to provide a working HTML tree without the js libs, I 
completely agree, "recommends" is just fine. My take on this was based 
on the fact that I ended up with a non functional install after the 
upgrade, and the javascript libs fixed my immediate problem.
