And also - probably more importantly - because some packages that belong
to a task may not be available for all architectures.
This means that for example if a task lists a powerpc- or sparc-specific
package, it will currently not get included on the CD (unless it gets
included for other reasons of course).
This won't affect installs where a mirror is used, but can affect installs
from CD/DVD only.
