MonoDevelop depends on Lynx?

I just installed MonoDevelop for the first time and I have a question: why does the Ubuntu MonoDevelop package depend on Metacity and Lynx? It makes no sense.

The Lynx part really gets me. What possible use could a graphical IDE have for a text-mode browser? Especially given that it depends on Firefox as well.

And what's worse, I can't even see where Lynx is getting pulled in. I don't see it in MonoDevelop's list of dependencies, but Adept doesn't want to install MonoDevelop without it. What's the deal?
