'Twas brillig, and Olav Vitters at 13/02/12 11:28 did gyre and gimble:

Just FWIW, I also like this idea (tho' fully understand if it's decided
not to have YATP (Yet Another Task Package))

I also like the name "graphical" as it is future proofing against
X11->Wayland transition and also uses the same naming as systemd targets
(so if there is a non-graphical equiv of this then task-multi-user would
be my preferred naming :D)

I don't personally think it's that ugly. You may only want e.g. a MythTV
or XBMC etc. media frontend in which case a full blown DE is simply not
needed, but a graphical display certainly is.
