      I would also go for it as it is.

     I have not tested it myself, but we need to release the feature to see
how good it is.
     I am optimistic that it will work.

     Would go for releasing them, with an "experimental" warning in the
manual pages.
     If we do not release these tasks, we won't get any feedback as to
whether they are generally useful,
     or whether their build file interface is easy to use, or whether they
contain unwanted features.

Cheers,

Antoine
