It seemed to me that epiphany-extensions depends on epiphany-gecko, but
that epiphany-browser was not pulled in by that.

There's a big difference between choosing to use swfdec to display flash
files from Desktop, and using it to display flash files from the whole
web. Has the GNOME project really decided to use swfdec in browsers by
default? All I was aware of was them having decided to use swfdec-gnome
so far.

Reassigned to you then.
