A) I'm not going to fix this
B) I'm not going to fix this in Jessie

I would like to repeat that if I ever talked about any Blend every talk
got a flavour of the following question: How can I *easily* install
Blend X? Unfortunately I always needed to answer that there is no
*easy* way, but you can do "stuff". I wonder whether you see a chance
to change this for Jessie? What you expect from the Blends team to
work on this in case your answer would be yes?
Kind regards and thanks for working on tasksel
