Bug#549121: libslv2-9: abusive Recommends

Package: libslv2-9
Version: 0.6.6-2
Severity: important

new gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad adds an LV2 plugin, and thus depends on
libslv2-9.  Because that package recommends slv2-jack, this upgrade
results in:
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  jackd jackd-firewire libffado1 libfreebob0 libslv2-9 libxml++2.6-2
  qjackctl slv2-jack

Please drop that recommends, it's absolutely not reasonable for a shared
library package.
