FWIW, I've got a patch to tasksel which allows you to group task packages
by Section: nicely, so this can be avoided, if we want. ftpmaster is
quite happy to create some special sections purely for grouping tasks
if that's considered desirable, btw.

There's a task-desktop (including both Gnome and KDE --- you get to choose
what you want from gdm), at
	deb http://people.debian.org/~ajt/ task-desktop/
fwiw. (Ideally, I'd rather someone other than me maintain it)
