No, tasksel does not need to know installation methods. I don't know why
it would matter anyway. Tasksel knows whether the contents of the task

Why do you want to call your task "utnubu desktop" and not just
"desktop"? Isn't the goal of the task to provide the best possible desktop
environment to the user? That's the same goal of the desktop task.
