Should the task package you propose e.g. depend on reiserfsprogs although
a user doesn't use reiserfs? The packages that are new are only needed
when you use new features/drivers like e.g. reiserfs, iptables or devfs.
That's the reason why i can't see how to make a useful task package.

When you upgrade modutils you can no longer run a modular 2.0.x kernel.
