Given the fact that each kernel add a certain load on hdlists, I think
we should really try to avoid their proliferation.
( kernel represent 33% of the size of contribs hdlist at Mandriva ).

Good luck with deciding what is "good and necessary". You will always
end frustrating people whose definition of good and necessary to be
And secondary, I think we should also try to avoid having too much task-
rpms. Their values is in the fact they allow to quickly install a set of
rpm without searching in the whole set of rpm.
If there is too much of them, people while end searching in the various
task-* rpms, and that seems counter productive at best.
( ie, searching the task rpm they want to avoid searching rpm they want
directly ... ).
