Nightly builds have generally been stable. Nevertheless you are living on
the edge when you choose to use the nightly builds.

The facility to use objects in place of strings when configuring tasks is in
place now. You will see that a number of tasks have been converted over to
using Paths and File objects in place of Strings. I'm not sure how it might
facilitate build number incrementing. I think that would be a good idea for
a separate, pretty simple, task.
