This could be done (by returning a smart replacement for Hashtable in
project.getReferences in the first place) and you'd still have to
resolve all references when you encounter a script task, but it would
probably work.

So let's try to get consensus here.

As far as I can tell, the only reason to have task instances created
at parser time are references.  If nobody else can come up with a
different reason and we can address this issue, we have consensus, no?
