According to the documentation, tasksel is only used to install a set of
packages. It's not supposed to handle the configuration of the task (the
configuration of the package is handled by the package itself). 

Adding another task that would just install one package may be a
hard sell this time. What would make more sense is to install the samba
package _and_ a configuration tool for samba. Unfortunately I don't know
of any that are in main and could be integrate for gutsy.
