I think there are two problems:

1. How do we get this package; must it be rebuilt every time a package
   is added/removed from standard? It would need to keep track of
   differences accross architectures too.
2. Making it be selected by default in tasksel is not surrently
   supported. It occurs to me though that tasksel could look at package
   status and mark all tasks that are installed or are marked for install.
   Then base-config could just 
   'echo task-standard install | dpkg --set-selections' before running
