Yeah, this seems the right sort of thing to be doing.

The solver and picker have very different ways of representing things, 
so matching them up is a bit tricky, but now we initialize the picker to 
the solver's initial solution, anything in the picker that's changed by 
the user should be converted to a task.

I was wondering how to get a "lock in uninstalled state", but I guess 
you have discovered that it's by locking by name...
