It is still there in the Ubuntu alternative network installer (boot.img.gz) of 12.04. – maxschlepzig Apr 26 '12 at 20:23

This appears to be a bug that snuck into the seeds that were used to build ISO's for Ubuntu 11.10, presumably fairly late, as it was not caught in the fairly comprehensive beta ISO testing.

The task option itself is not really useful, and shouldn't be seen there.
