What you've written is good.  It's all encapsulated within the 
AreaFilter class so it's easy to change later if complexity becomes an

I originally intended people to be able to write their own external 
plugins so most of it is already there.  The main class that would need 
updating is the TaskRegistrar class which currently hard codes all the 
available tasks.  Probably wouldn't be hard to make it load tasks from a 
file.  It just hasn't been needed yet :-)  If you do wish to plug it 
into the existing pipeline framework, let me know.

I'll probably delete the 0.4 tasks soon so I wouldn't worry about 
updating them.
