In our case task-cyrillic won't be subset, but superset of task-russian.
And maybe task-cyrillic will depend on task-russian. task-cyrillic
supports all Cyrillic encodings that are in common use (not only KOI8-R).
The problem Peter sees in that approach is that many Russian users will
install the package task-cyrillic and because of that they will have
some unnecesary packages installed on their systems. From the Peter's
message I see that he wants the package task-russian to install a rather
small selection of packages.
