Bug#510928: Needs way to set tasksel/desktop with hacking /var/cache/debconf/config.dat

Package: tasksel
Version: 2.77
Severity: minor

It'd be useful to be able to set the desktop for tasksel after installing a standard system (e.g. when not using an xfce cdrom but wanting xfce as the desktop later).  This also could help with preseeding a desktop that doesn't use gnome but is different than the usual.

Would this also affect tasks in aptitude, or is that only affected by debian-tasks.desc (and task fields if applicable)?
