More than being a part of, x-window-system is the *only* package in
the basic-desktop task.

I think there is something fundamentally wrong in this task if it's
called "basic" and, at the same time, it includes xspecs.

There is also a `desktop' task containing x-window-system-core, which
is the "good" one.

I think the basic-desktop task should not exist, or it should not
contain x-window-system, or we should not force it to be in the first CD.

I would like to hear some comments about this from whoever created
this weird "basic-desktop" task.
