I agree it should indeed be an explicit dependency, and not only for the
installer. I've added it to gnome-desktop-environment for a later

If you use gnome, it will always be pulled by epiphany-extensions

Another omission on my side.

Indeed, but please don’t hesitate if you find some new dependency looks
useless or too big.

Upstream made the choice for us. Now that swfdec-gnome is part of the
official GNOME release (see gnome-desktop-environment), swfdec-mozilla
is only here to bring the browser on par with the desktop’s abilities.

Ah, I see the latest version is now in git. Maybe you could remove the
old svn.debian.org to not confuse users of this old and boring

Ah, indeed. I will add it to the gnome package, as it is necessary for
spell checking in evolution. Please don’t add it to the task, though, as
the next version will use libenchant instead.
