Bug#751944: mate-control-center: mate-appearance-properties depends on marco-common

So I've just done another install of mate, this time a very minimal one
in a VM, using the wheezy-backports packages.
As I mentioned with the last one of these, I still like to use sawfish
as the wm, so I don't have marco installed. On this one, I don't need
any audio support either so I didn't install mate-media-gstreamer, which
you fixed the marco dep on in #750456. Which means nothing else pulled
in marco-common on this one ...
Without that, it appears I can't run mate-appearance-properties:
(mate-appearance-properties:11651): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.mate.Marco.general' is not installed
(which I only really wanted to change the green stripes background to
something a little more subdued :)
Installing marco-common appears to fix this.
Ideally it would be nice if it still worked without needing that
(I really do like that mate mostly still lets me install only what
I actually need on a particular system without dozens of apps that
I absolutely don't), but as-is it's just a missing dep.
