In how far is it stupid that if a metapackage intends to install a set
of _Debian_ packages featuring multimedia tasks to make sure that really
these packages are installed while enabling a user to install, say
acrobat reader in addition without influencing the set of multimedia
packages available inside Debian? It is not about hunting down anything
but installing reasonable preconfiguration - local admin can override
this for sure.
I wonder what criterion of serios bug would apply here. Just for the
sake of interest because I do not intend to implement this personally.
