The setup.ini package update is run every ten minutes.  It doesn't
matter if something is deleted or updated.  upset still finds it.

Under the assumption that there is supposed to be no version of task in
1.7, I've removed the directory (again) and confirmed that setup-2.ini
has no downloadable package available.  However, I don't really
understand why the 1.5 version of task won't work on 1.7.  Having a
newer version of something in 1.5 sounds like a nice recipe for
confusion when 1.7 goes live.
