Hmmm, as you perfectly know yourself the Blends tasksel control files
are auto generated and I personally do not see any chance to maintain
them in tasksel Git.  Specifically if we (as usual) upload Blends
metapckages way *after* the freeze short before the real release to get
the current status of the package pool at release time (we might loose
some packages in the freeze) it might be hard to convince tasksel +
release team to change tasksel as well.

I'm in favour of discussing Paul's idea to depend tasksel from *-tasks

Kind regards
