It would not collide with anything, but I doubt this is good interface design. 
The puzzle creation dialog is not the right moment to inform the user about 
missing dependencies, and there were already several chances:

1. If Palapeli was compiled from source, the CMake output will now contain a 
notice that the optional dependency qvoronoi is missing.
2. If Palapeli was installed from a package, the package management should (if 
possible) have pulled in the qhull package already if it is available.

Apart from this information, I think that documentation of this dependency in 
the handbook should suffice (perhaps with a special remark that it is enough 
to have the qvoronoi executable somewhere in $PATH, without the need for root-
privileged installation).
