Randolph is right. Also, there are 2 ways to skip using dselect:

1) run dselect and immeditaly type "q\n".
2) run tasksel and immeditaly type "q".

Note that this is 1 more way than you had in slink.

Either should be more than sufficient for the very small group of advanced
users who don't want to install at least all required/important packages.

I'm closing this bug report. If you feel very differently, we can re-open it
wishlist, nothing will be done for potato, but in woody I _may_ add a third
choice to the menu iff the user has "low" priority selected.
