shiki-* packages suggest the non-existent arc-* packages

Bug Description

The shiki-colors package (Metacity themes) suggests arc-colors (backgrounds), which no longer exists. The same for all the individual packages, shiki-brave suggests arc-brave, etc.

In /debian/control, each line that suggests an arc-* package should be removed. It can't be good to suggest a package that doesn't exist.

This applies to Lucid and later, but should at least get fixed for Maverick.

There is a separate bug 564769 requesting that the actual backgrounds from the arc- packages be included with the corresponding shiki-package. This seems like a good idea, as these backgrounds were very well done.

Maybe I should give more information for triaging...

In Synaptic, in Lucid and later, look at the details for shiki-colors, you'll see it suggests arc-colors, but it's in italics because arc-colors doesn't exist. Same for shiki-blue, shiki-wine, each of them suggests a corresponding arc- package that no longer exists. While this doesn't seem to cause any problems, it doesn't seem right. The arc- packages were removed in Lucid because of the changes to GDM.
