Bug#901711: arctica-greeter: please downgrade mate-settings-daemon to Recommends

Package: arctica-greeter
Severity: normal

I'm normally a fan of installing all recommends, but when trying out
-guest-session on an Xfce system, I found it was pulling in all sorts of
other DE packages (and openbox). I was able to exclude most of them by
disabling Recommends for ayatana-indicator-session.

Unfortunately, with mate-settings-daemon a Depends, I was unable to
exclude that tree of mate dependencies. Now, to be fair, I haven't
actually checked/tested to see if it is required for arctica-greeter to
work, but if not, please reduce the dependency tree by making it
