Well, since rhythmbox is part of the gnome task, and it was already included
in the gnome meta-package in sarge I guess you are correct (now).

However, for sid users, notice that rhythmbox depended on avahi-daemon from
version 0.9.2-3 (2006-01-22) until version 0.9.3-1 (2006-02-05).

So, any sid user that upgraded his system (even from sarge or etch) in those
two weeks (from January the 22nd to February the 5th) they *will* have avahi
installed regardless.

Also, any user that does a limite install and then installs the gnome
meta-package (not the gnome-desktop task with tasksel) will pull in avahi
