Would it be reasonable to change from depends to recommends or

We could split the sound servers-related plugins into several runtime
packages (cmus-sound-{alsa,pulse,roar} to provide ALSA/OSS, Pulse and
roar plugins).

I think there is no problem beyond relaxing dependencies in _one_ direction but not the other:

  * Apps should depend on libs
  * Libs should suggest daemons
  * Daemons should depend on libs and (at most) recommend apps
