Waldi (bcc: in case he isn't subscribed) told me he did this, because it's 
priority "important" and thus changes the default install. I don't quite get 
this, as it should be a no-op (on s390) and (if this is true) since this also 
changes the default install on other archs...

And as tasksel depends on laptop-detect, this makes tasksel uninstallable on 
s390 and prevents laptop-detect from migrating to testing - the version in 
testing in almost a year old. 

How is this supposed to be resolved?
