It isn't really tasks.ctl that control this, it is debian-cd and our use
of it.  tasks.ctl only control the order 'make packages.txt' output
tasks.  We use the list of packages to fill the ISO, until the ISO reach
the size limit we set on our CONF* files.  When that I said, I assume
tasks.ctl is documented in the blends documentation. :)

Give it a try, and see what happen. :)

We can raise the limit for sure.  A bigger problem is the lack of spare
disk space on our build host.  We do not have temp space for building
many images.

It take effect immediately, see build/CD-administrator/wanted-list.  So
it is fairly quick to experiement.
