If you add it as a suggestion, it will almost certainly NOT be pulled in. It will appear as a suggestion, but not be picked as a default. That's what "Recommended" is for.


Putting Gtk.theme in "Recommended" is the best option considering what desktops people will be using by default.

If you want to give people the choice of what they will use by default, use 'debconf' or 'alternatives' or something like that. Or create a new meta-theme that detects user's environment and loads another appropriate theme.

But if a good out-of-the-box experience for new users is what we're aiming for, then Gtk.theme belongs in "Recommended" section for either applications, or of gnustep-gui. And it belongs in the defaults as a (heh) default option. It's still optional, it's still changeable, it's just installed by default.

That's what Debian's "suggest" is for. You can have a package be required, recommended or suggested. In this case, adding it as a suggestion is probably a good idea.
