This has been a recent conversation in this list.  Redefining tasks  
is a common request.  I'm considering several approaches, but am  
looking for a way to make it easier for multiple plugins to work  
together (rather than the last plugin to just clobber the previous one).

If you are looking for a particular patch, I think the list archives  
has several solutions (http://rubyforge.org/pipermail/rake-devel/).
