Subject Re: Reporter vs context

Context is what the new MR API offers, and it wraps over a Reporter
object, and provides other helpful functions and data you'd require
within a task (lives up to its name).

Reporter was the raw object provided in the old MR API, that lets one
report progress, set status, etc.. In new API, you access the same
reporter via a Context wrapper class instead.
