some of the 1.5 tasks (setproxy and, um, something else that escapes me but
it was one I stuck in) only use the xdoclet generated docs, so everything
stays in one file. For new tasks, I'd take that path, remembering to escape
angle brackets and the like in the java source to make it less readable,
then use proposal/xdocs to doc things.
