Right. A "few libraries" would probably be acceptable to me as well 
(although I'd prefer to not get any X when installing a server task).

The actual print server related packages total just under 80MB. Dragging 
in 90MB (installed size) worth of X and Gnome when selecting a printer 
task from tasksel for an old 486 or Pentium that was supposed to be a 
lightweight server, is broken in my book.

The SQL task loses almost 30MB when pgaccess is deselected. AFAICT 
pgaccess is a _client_ application used to query a Postgress _server_.
