I have already tested a trivial patch that does _not_ add packages that are
installed immediately to the queue. And that seems to work.
How about adding these packages to the queue-file as '# <packagename>'?
Then it would simply be a case of filtering out lines starting with '#' in
procedure install_extra in base-installer's postinst.
Implementing this looks trivial as well.
