Thank you for your suggestion.

It should be discussed with people who package Xfce in Debian
(CC'ed). For most desktop tasks, the content of the tack is determined
by the relevant team. The tasksel maintainers (or what's left of them)
only apply their recommendations.

Please keep all addresses but me when answering this mail (I'll
receive anwswers through the bug tracking system anyway).
