Anyone ever thought about having task-* packages with Priority: standard and
pre-selecting them in tasksel (either with special switch or by default)?
Then everyone not wanting e.g. task-c-dev (whose "components" are mostly
Pri: standard now) can easily turn it off. Then we can also have a
task-important-pkgs to make it possible to _not_ install Pri: important
packages when using the `simple' install method.
