One problem is that tasksel is used to select between tasks, and kde or
xorg are not a task, they're a fairly-well-defined collection of software.
Tasks are slightly less well defined as the idea is it's some collection
of software that sets the computer up to perform a certian task.

debtags might be a better match for what you're wanting to do, really..
