 I wonder if the -tasks packages are really adequate.  Perhaps they
 can be, if they have a bunch of nice `debconf' stuff added to them?
 We need there to be a fully *working* out of the box setup after an
 install is done.  The -tasks packages right now are kind of a lazy
 cheap hack, IMHO.  More work needs to be done on that.

 Hey, what are "package pools" anyway?  (don't answer) I need to look
 that all up.  I missed that whole thread, but have seen in mentioned
 here and there.
