I'll second that.  I'm using it here on a couple of woody machines.  It's
quite nice.

One slight note here - if you want the entire thing (other than the dev
stuff) then you need do only apt-get install task-helix-gnome  That package
depends on the task-helix-core package.  The end effect is the same either

Also, I believe the original poster said he was using his system
command-line only - the task-helix-core package also depends on the core
XWindows package, and the task-helix-core package will bring in the
Sawfish-Gnome window manager.
