While I'm downloading flight 6...

Shouldn't *-desktop depend on build-essential too? As far as I know c
and c++ are far more popular languages in schools and universities
than python. I'm almost sure that even pascal is more used than python
in those places. Or perhaps we should make metapackage for each
language (python-develop, c-develop, ruby-develop, etc)?
