Subject Re: TaskManager uses

Peter - I've uploaded a patch for a first simple test case. This is 
mainly to verify that I'm doing the process right, but I'll be very 
interested if it hits.

Please let me know if there are any problems. I've deliberately avoided 
granting the ASF license because I want no risk at all of it getting 
into distributed code. River developers are, of course, licensed to use 
it in test environments.
