Bug Description

I don't want any unity lens / scopes, except local files.

But it's not possible to remove them without removing some apps:
apt-get purge 'unity-scope*'

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  bamfdaemon* brasero* brasero-cdrkit* gir1.2-unity-5.0* libbrasero-media3-1* libunity-scopes-json-def-desktop* libunity-webapps0*
  libunity9* lightdm-remote-session-uccsconfigure* nautilus* nautilus-sendto* nautilus-share* shotwell* ubuntu-desktop* unity*
  unity-lens-applications* unity-lens-files* unity-scope-audacious* unity-scope-calculator* unity-scope-chromiumbookmarks*
  unity-scope-clementine* unity-scope-colourlovers* unity-scope-devhelp* unity-scope-firefoxbookmarks* unity-scope-gdrive*
  unity-scope-gmusicbrowser* unity-scope-gourmet* unity-scope-guayadeque* unity-scope-home* unity-scope-manpages*
  unity-scope-musique* unity-scope-openclipart* unity-scope-texdoc* unity-scope-tomboy* unity-scope-video-remote*
  unity-scope-virtualbox* unity-scope-yelp* unity-scope-zotero* unity-scopes-master-default* unity-scopes-runner*
  unity-webapps-service* usb-creator-gtk* xul-ext-unity* xul-ext-websites-integration*

Expected: only unity-scope* packages to be removed.
