@ddstreet, this packageset seem to exist because of a transition that
has happened:

Ubuntu Studio desktop core seed

Task-Per-Derivative: 1
Task-Section: user
Task-Description: Former Ubuntu Studio minimal DE installation
Task-Extended-Description: This task is a dummy task
Task-Key: ubuntustudio-desktop-core
Task-Name: ubuntustudio-desktop-core
Task-Seeds: desktop-common

Seed is empty during transition to KDE Plasma desktop environment

* (ubuntustudio-desktop)
* ubuntustudio-desktop-core

If my reading is right, it looks like after updating package-sets from
the seeds we will have to clean up some of them.
