Maybe this: apt-get install --install-suggests cubicweb

The problem you describe is not so specific to the cubicweb ecosystem. 
Imagine you ask your sysadmin to install ipython. On Debian you'll not 
get the famous notebook (shipped by a separate package ipython-notebook) 
for the very same reason: it's only suggested by the ipython package.
