instantiation, configuration, validation, service discovery, ..., to execution.  Task testing

You should advertise it more.  It's very impressive work.

Myrmidon would be an excellent place to try some of the stuff I want to do, particularly given

be handy, to evaluate what impact the changes have on the task writer.

Right now I'm cranking away on a VFS proposal, so won't be making changes to Myrmidon any
time soon.
