Not sure if I'm missing some context, but it shouldn't be too hard to get it
right if you use IntrospectionHelper. For the NetBeans module I was able to
successfully implement context-sensitive structure editing with
IntrospectionHelper doing all the dirty work. With a little trickery you can
support custom tasks too, you just have to find a reference to the Class of
the task somewhere.
