Consider the 'gnome' debian package. It depends  on rhythmbox.
But I wan't gnome without rhythmbox. Is this possible?
No, it is not possible. You can't install the gnome *package* without
installing the rhythmbox *package*. But there is a workaround if you
really want to. gnome is basically a meta-package, it does not provide
any file of its own. It just lists a set of dependencies which get
installed when gnome gets installed.
