Bug#581803: installer task selection behaves gracelessly

reassign 581803 tasksel
retitle 581803 Should add a confirmation dialog after choosing tasks before starting package installation

Quoting James Cranch (jdc41@cam.ac.uk):

The only really feasible thing seems to be the confirmation dialog. I
doubt many people will jump in this, though.
