TR: tasksel + gdm and accessibility issues for the d-i

Hi all,

Even if I do really appreciate all the efforts done for making the d-i 
one of the best in the world, I'm still frustrated to see some things that 
could/should be much better implemented in future releases:

1) one of it resides in tasksel:
   this moment in the installer process is underexploited in our VI
   I see a [*]Desktop or [*]Standard item marked for installation;
   but I miss a [ ]Desktop Accessibility entry. (Note the blank in the [ ]
   because of course sighted people doesn't need to activate it...)
2) why not using this on a more coherent/logical way:
   IMHO if there would be an entry in tasksel as described above, that
   should be used to increase accessibility if the user marks it for
   installation, especially with consequences like these one:
   a) at the login moment in gdm: by providing a signal or voice or any
      sound/message (cf. my previous mail about this issue) 
   b) when marked for installation, that would have the consequence to
      run Orca by default from that point (gdm -> the beginning of the Gnome
      session). So if you're sighted and haven't marked the
     [*Desktop Accessibility item, then no problem, no login signal, no
Isn't this a plan?

IMHO this is a logical implementation to help with finishing the job: the d-i
is the only one who doesn't interfer with the needs of sighted persons,
while providing a good solution for VI people,
but having braille support at startup of the CD/DVD while
not having the possibility to enable gnome-orca from within tasksel,
sound a little bit absurd for me. Do we can do that ?
