As a side note, pkgsel calls tasksel with --new-install, but maybe
others are using this flag outside d-i contexts. So I'd probably add
a --internal-tasks-only there.

As another side note, tasksel-data in Debian only has:

while latest Ubuntu has:

so it would be nice to support all desc files shipped in tasksel-data
rather than hardcoding debian-tasks.desc when the --internal-tasks-only
flag is passed.

Martin, I think this would go along the lines of the idea you mentioned
