I don't understand why for Etch, if a user chooses "Desktop" during
tasksel, they shouldn't get the just works[tm] experience.

This might take some effort, and perhaps some more tuning than just a
bunch of packages getting installed, but I think there is still time
left to make Etch rock on the desktop.  Hey, even Sarge seems pretty
much good enough for a lot of users already.

Ubuntu's excellence shouldn't be an excuse to sit back and not make our
Desktop the best possible.
