[ros-users] Optional system dependencies

Would it be possible to create optional dependencies for packages? This would 
mean that the package would perfectly work without this dependency. But if you 
want e.g. the documentation to build also, you need this optional system 
dependency too.

This would result in a "suggests" ubuntu package instead of a hard dependency.
