Why does installing gnome packages versioned 2.28+6 insist on installing gnash?

Gnash is a noble effort. Gnash sucks. I want choice, and my choice is Adobe Flash. Installing Gnash screws up Flash. Right now, I can refuse to update GNOME on Squeeze any further, but the time will come when that will not be a viable option. Why does GNOME require Gnash? And what can I do to put a stop to it?
