Something it could do, without needing root privileges, is to check if
all the dependencies are installed. If not, it can bail with a message
like:

    The following system dependencies are missing:
        ...
    To install them, run the following command:
        sudo apt-get install ...

Would that be better?

Fwiw, I like the automatic installation, but I can see that it's not
going to be to everyone's tastes.
