I find this much too atomic.

Currently, users who choose the GNOME or KDE tasks *do* get stuff  for
laptops even if they don't have a laptop....which is perfectly
acceptable, IMHO. 

Similarly, if there is a good network management stuff for lightweight
desktop environments, it should be added to these environments,
period. Whether this may sometimes be extra stuff for people who do
use "old" computers shouldn't be that a problem....at least not more
than other components of these desktop environments.

When I choose a desktop environment, I usually get a CD/DVD burner
even if I don't have on on my current machine. And, indeed, I just do
not care..:-)
