Bug#461110: Status of this bug report

From what I read in this bug report, it suggest *two* things:

- include important packages in the standard task
- make it possible to unselect them

Joey clearly answered "no" to the second question, with the basic
argument that a package one would want eventually to drop from
important is probably not belonging to important. I buy that.

I haven't seen an answer to the *first* question, so I'll make
mine. The purpose of putting a package in "standard" is.....exactly
having it installed by default on default installs.

So, merging important into standard just makes the distinction between
standard and important pointless. I'm *very* tempted to mark this bug
as "wontfix".

I'd rather buy the idea of having an "important" task, then maybe even
other priorities but maybe extra.
