My worry if I were to do that is that the installer would still offer to install
GNOME on s390x, and I don't know what would happen if one chose that (I suppose
apt would realise it's uninstallable and give a proper error, but maybe things
would explode).

So if we're going to make task-gnome-desktop uninstallable there, maybe the
installer shouldn't offer to install it, and that needs changes somewhere in
tasksel or d-i.
