Because the plugin finder service is not used on any web site, for instance
youtube that suggests to install the Macromedia Flash plugin.

I don't know, are choices allowed by Debian packages?  In case they are not
and we need to choose one Free Flash player then we support the GNU
Gnash one and its development.
Unfortunately such choices will never make happy all users but websites like
youtube that advise non-free software are not acceptable by our principles.

Still I hope it will be possible to add the gnash/swfdec choice to the .deb
