I should note that Ant2 will be my forth wet run at building a task
execution API and thus I tend to make assumptions and may often forget to
communicate them. So if anything I say is less than clear feel free to
point it out and I will try to clarify. (And explain more why than what).

Anyways for the next month or two I will probably throw out a bunch of
votes like this once a week - or whenever I get time to type ;]. The things
I need will come first and the more controvertial or les urgent things will
come later. However anyone else should feel free to do the same ;) (or
raise points they feel are urgent etc).
