Yesh I know. But afaik tasks are only displayed by aptitude, it doesn't
have the choice on what they represent. I guess when one runs “aptitude
install <task> it doesn't calls tasksel install which would then call
aptitude install <task> which would loop :)

But the point is, the source for tasks is tasksel.
