My submission did not modify the interface to Task, only to DataType.
The compatibility problems I was refering to stem from the use of classes
derived from DataType in a task.

I also understand that while my patch would have been easy to apply a week
ago, it is getting increasingly difficult as new code is added to the baseline 
(although I am willing to submit a new patch if so requested).

Anyway, it looks like the decision has been made, and I'll have to wait.
