The epiphany-browser package only contains the /usr/bin/epiphany wrapper
script, which is only here for backwards compatibility, so no need for
it on new installations.

As GNOME is moving away from Gecko, they are not promoting technologies
tied to it, but given that GNOME developers are working on swfdec, I
think it is only a matter of time until epiphany integrates swfdec one
way or another.
