Hmm, I had expected this would make it install _all_ standard packages,
but indeed if I remove w3m the command does not install it back. Why
does this behave differently than installing ~t, which installs new
packages in the task? I could work around it in tasksel by listing all
the packages, but this seems like a bug in aptitude, perhaps.
