Implementing which task properly?

<apply> saves you from writing a task in the gcc (or any similar
transformation) case, it is a whole bunch of tasks in one - without a
need for a custom task.

For things like compiling C(++) sources, I'd certainly prefer a custom
task with smart dependency checking and all that, but if my project
contains three or four C files for my JNI stuff and the simple <apply>
task is all I need, then why should I bother writing a task for it?
