All tasks determine what to do and wich dependencies to use
themselves. You best bet is to implement a custom task for your
transformation (extending MatchingTask would be you best starting point
I guess) and check which files need processing inside this task.

I agree that a simple file to file dependency mapping like it is used
by copydir and javac (at least at the moment) could be factored out
into a helper class to be reused though.
