  Unnecessary thai-fonts dependency

Status in phatch package in Ubuntu:
Status in phatch package in Debian:

Bug description:
  Photo batch processor has a dependency of ttf-thai-tlwg which is a
  meta-package that installs several thai fonts, and refuses to install
  without them.  English only users generally have no need for these
  thai fonts and I can't find any reason why Phatch would absolutely
  need them installed to be able to operate. I request that this
  dependency be removed so that people who do not need them are not
  forced to install them.

  1)$ lsb_release -rd
  Description:  Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
  Release:      12.04

  2)$ apt-cache policy phatch
    Installed: (none)
    Version table: 0
          500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/universe amd64 

  3) Expected to happen:
  Application installs without unneeded thai fonts.

  4)What happened instead:
  Applications installs with unneeded thai fonts and no way to remove them 
afterwards without also removing Phatch.

  Additional info:
  Language fonts should be optional and based on the locale configuration of 
the user, not on a package requirement.

  This might be an upstream issue since it seems the problem was already
  reported and cleared up by the package maintainers for Fedora:
  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=654867, but it doesn't
  appear this dependency was removed upstream and so is still included
  in Ubuntu builds.

  It seems also that phatch-cli package has the same dependency, not
  sure if I need to file that as a separate bug.
