My symlink task has all needed tests and docs :) Just read it through 
and drop it in, unless you see a problem :) If there is a problem, let 
me know so I can fix it.

Chgrp/chown has docs, but no test since testing would require knowledge 
of what groups/users exist on the system running the test. Since I 
reworked the chmod task splitting it into an abstract class and 3 very 
simple concrete implementations (chmod/chgrp/chown) There is only a very 
small ammount of code that has been added in this patch. I have been 
using the chgrp/chown tasks for a couple months on my project without 
any problems. (I use them to set permissions on about 6,000 files [an 
entire web site] about once a day). I think for the default permissions 
I will switch to a chmod/chgrp/chown -R exec command for spped, but 
having a task for setting permissions, makes it easy to leverage 
filesets in a simple, readable quick way. (Simpler than setting up an apply)

Symlink is also used in my website rebuilds.
