Or you can override getRuntimeConfigurableWrapper() and implement whatever
policy you want - you will have full access to the AttributeList and 
you can do whatever you want in maybeConfigure().

As I mentioned, the ProjectComponentHelper will provide a mechanism to
plug in modules that control almost completely how tasks are created and
configured, and the ProjectHelper plugin allows almost complete
control over how the XML file is processed.
