Oops.. ok.

I rarely invoke tasks in this manner though, and when I have it was to 
embed a <java> task inside a custom task to wrap a third-party closed 
source tool.  And in that case I didn't want it to appear as though 
<java> was being called under the hood so I used execute().  In this 
case it seems its ok to call execute.  Am I missing any adverse 
side-effects to calling it in this scenario?

Calling perform() from a <script>, though, is the right thing to do - 
sorry 'bout that.
