I reversed now the behaviour of the flags in blends-dev, so that tasks
are *only* installed if they have an "Install: true" in the
header. Also, the -all package is only created if there was any task
with the "Install: true". This should solve the problem, so that a
workaround is not needed.

I would, however, also change the debian-blends-tasks.desc so that the
"-all" file is the key (not the -tasks file, as it is in the
moment). This would disable all blends in the installer that haven't
anything to install yet. For Debian-Edu (and others wishing their own
solution here): please edit the file afterwards and put there whatever
should be in there.

Objections on that?

Best regards
