I recently sent a mail questioning the Task: field. Seems I have
misunderstood (I thought it was intended to be a field in task packages,
listing the packages in the task). Now that I understand, I support Aj's
proposal wholeheartedly, except my thoughts about using sections to
organize tasks, rather than overloding the package name, still stand.
