you could add an interface Taskable and make Task implement it; anything
else which implemented Taskable would say not only that they had execute(),
but that they implemented whatever other methods went in there.

But I dont know what impact that has on 3rd party subclasses of task which
want to run on 1.5 and previous versions of ant; it is getting into JLS spec
details that I like to steer clear of.
