the app checker won't fail an app here, apps are checked against
what's in the spec, not against distros. the only thing that
could fail based on knowledge of a specific distribution
would be the readiness predictor. 

I wonder if there was some sort of glitch in the captured data,
because it looks pretty default to me on a 10.04 netbook:

$ aptitude why libgl1-mesa-glx
i   ubuntu-netbook Depends libgl1-mesa-glx
