OK, here is a seven page PDFshowing how to write and test tasks. You should
really read it alongside our book which is apparently shipping as of this
week (!), or look more closely at the ant source and javadocs  which contain
the same information in a different format.

I'm minded to pull this in to the ant docs; it is short and simple enough to
merit this, we just need to pull the test class into its own jar, regress
test the example, clean up and format convert the doc to docbook or similar.
