That is the Key packages from the gnome-desktop and desktop tasks in

I was wrong about recommends being included currently.

Well, that is included in the task as a non-key package, so is
downloaded if possible. (And should be included on the DVD, assuming all
of gnome fits on a DVD :)

We should probably do that. That's enough of gnome not to be laughable? 
(network-manager-gnome seems to not be included in that, but then it's
recommended by the gnome-metapackage so would not be included from the 
current gnome-desktop-enviromnent using task either, if installing w/o
a network, I think..)

Rough size numbers (probably 20 mb or more off in some direction):

                                           i386    amd64
available space on CD #1 for gnome         372 mb  392 mb
gnome-desktop-environment with recommends  543 mb  584 mb
gnome-desktop-environment no recommends    366 mb  394 mb
list 1+2 with recommends                   411 mb  436 mb
list 1+2 no recommends                     257 mb  279 mb
list 1 with recommends                     307 mb  332 mb
list 1 no recommends                       214 mb  236 mb
