Perhaps, but even the slightest change in architecture of rake could
have a huge ripple effect for anyone relying on how and when it decides
to invoke and iterate tasks.  I've got a lot of code that dynamically
creates tasks and adds prerequisites on the fly.  Changes like those
discussed make me nervous.  :)
