I am afraid that this is a bit too much, who knows what other problems
linger in the task packages, and one can quite nicely live without trying to
install them. In this case I would like to ask you to first file a bug
report and discuss a proper fix with the maintainer. When it won't get fixed
for some time, but the issue is at least known to the responsible person, I
am willing to add the work around dummy package.
The distinction here is that the uninstallability of the task package is a
bug in the task package itself, while the uninstallability of bsdutils
and libstdc++2.10-dev is a bug in dpkg.
