[pkg-php-pear] Bug#820336: composer: remove mercurial from Recommends

Package: composer
Version: 1.0.0-1
Severity: wishlist


Installing composer by default also pulls in mercurial because it's in
Recommends. I personally doubt that the amount of mercurial use justifies
pulling it in by default (and e.g. not svn). I'd say it could be better
moved to Suggests.
