That's not exactly a new thought.
But if you're going to display a question anyway (at whatever priority),
it really would be *much* cleaner to implement it in tasksel itself. For
one thing, it is much more difficult for the installer to determine
correctly which desktops are actually installable. Tasksel already
contains all the functionality required for than.
