Bug Description

Binary package hint: psi

What happened:
I want to make voice call with Psi. I install the official package with Psi 0.13. I find that the voice call functionality is missing. I look at "recommends" and "suggests" section of the package. Found nothing interesting. I don't know how to enable voice call.

What should happed:
As above, but the official package with Psi 0.13 should come with information about the psimedia package, which is required to use voice. I would discover it and install.

What I'd love to see:
psimedia should be kind of required. I believe that voice call functionality is something that average user expects to be always available. I think that Psi without psimedia is very unusual configuration.

I believe that the most user-friendly solution is to provide "psi" package with voice calls functionality and separate "psi-no-voice" for people with this special requirement.

Well, while I'm not sure I'd agree on with-voice being a more natural use case than without-voice I surely agree on psimedia having a natural connection to psi. If nothing else it should, in my opinion, at least be listed as a Suggests.
