No, since the only package depending on xulrunner (hulahop) is installed
from a distro package.

Oh, you're right. I got confused by the many different Ubuntu releases;
hulahop is only included up to Karmic. They have dropped hulahop from
Lucid because it requires xulrunner and python-xpcom.
That reminds me I should request Sugar to be removed from Lucid. With
almost no activities packages and no Browse to download them from
activities.sugarlabs.org, it's pretty much useless to ordinary users.

Unfortunately there isn't. The "use distro packages" part is a custom
Sugar Labs hack; making it conditional on what packages are going to be
built would be quite some effort to implement. I'm not even sure I'd
merge a patch that does this as we'd divert further from upstream
