I don't think it's meaningful to have a task with |'s in its dependencies:
tasksel doesn't particularly handle that. Either both should be depended
on, or one should be picked. (gs-aladdin is non-free and provides: gs,
so it isn't an issue; apsfilter v magicfilter is trickier, I guess).

Suggests aren't really useful at all: tasksel doesn't display them, apt-get
doesn't install them, and if you're using dselect it's probably too late.
