drb wishes

          Components: Extensions
    Affects Versions: 1.3.4

Add hooks to Snapshot, so there can be better control over what tasks are redefined in each
1. some tasks are defined lazily to save performance when buildr runs directly. however, for
performance reasons i don't want to define them in each subsequent run. furthermore, some
of those tasks may have logic to not execute in subsequent builds under some circumstances.
==> add option to add tasks to the snapshot

2. some tasks may need to recreate their prerequisites in each run. for example in C++ a library
depends on the obj files from which it is linked. but in each run the list of objects needs
to be reconstructed to account for changes in the files. this can be handled by lazily defining
this list (since drb always returns the prerequisites to their original state), yet, it may
be easier if a hook is provided that instructs drb to recreate a task completely in subsequent
