Ahh, sorry. I looked at several tasks and found that the superclass's 
methods were not reflected in the documentation, but of course the ones I 
looked at all extended MatchingTask, which you have already said is 
special-cased. So I created a false impression for myself that none were 
being documented. Sorry about that.

Beauty way to go, eh.

Nothing. I was thinking that superclasses needed their own documentation 
page, but your clarification makes it clear that MatchingTask is the only 
one with that requirement.
