Bug#846002: blends-tasks must be priority:standard and not make a mess out of tasksel menu

Since I've been asked in an IRC query whether I might be willing to
consider this suggestion:

Philip Hands <phil@hands.com> (2017-02-03):

Sure! Feel free to prepare improvements to be reviewed, merged, and
tested at the beginning of the buster release cycle.

Thank you.
