Package installation based on package priority

Hi Emmanuel,

no this is not possible. In FAI we use deboostrap which already
installs package with priority required and important. In the config
for the cloud images, we use debootstrap --variant=minbase which only
install required packages.

The only way to do it using package_config is to write a hook which
dynamically creates a package_config file. That's possible.

If you need more info about that, just ask me again.

regards Thomas
