is this really supposed to be in tasksel? 

ok.. lets assume the question, 'what do i want to do?', 'i want to use
ldap'.. before we get here user has to learn what ldap is, and most
likely at that point he will know a name of the server he wants (or
knows how to use apt-cache) 

once again, 'i want to use ldap based authentication'.. at this point
there would be a admin present to set it up.. or if the user needs
ldap authentication and wants to set it up.. there is no need for a
task package on this.

the scene you are describing would just obsolete frontends for apt and
dpkg.. it wouldn't have anything to do with tasksel..
