i've thought a bit more. i understand where you're coming from, and it
would seem that that's been the way it's set up all along, and because
i've been using phil's example configs all along, i assumed that all
d-i was like that (minimalist install as a starting point).
i don't mind full customisation, but some point in the last 24-48 hours
it would appear that the way that you're supposed to disable desktop
tasksel has broken.
