Idea unmarked as "Not an Idea". Talked to torkiano and he explains that he wants it installed by default and the current install method is not sufficient. Furthermore he mentions that gnash would get greater testing if installed by default.
At the current time gnash is not complete nor stable.

Gnash 0.8.5 is pretty darn good. It works with a lot of sites (including youtube), is faster than the Adobe Flash Player, and works on all architectures that Ubuntu supports (unlike Adobe Flash, which even in Jaunty, crashes half the time on x86-64, and doesn't even run on anything else).
I strongly believe that Gnash should be installed by default.
