This will do the trick. But then we'll need to add this hack to both
appmenu-qt and libdbusmenu-qt…

Thinking more about it: sni-qt is quite critical because Unity has no fallback
X11 tray, and thus apps that use QSystemTrayIcons will function improperly when
sni-qt is not installed.

But appmenu-qt is less critical, without it apps will just have in-window menu
which is a slighly degraded experience, but will still work. So maybe we a
Suggests for it will be enough (we can keep that Suggests on indicator-appmenu
or move to libqtgui4, doesn't much matter).
