The start and end date *fields* in the UI are there already surely? They 
are just greyed out in the detail pane (right) for tasks... The date 
information would be a really useful addition for tasks IMHO. Otherwise, 
to be completely honest, I don't really see what use it is having tasks 
listed at all.

The only "physical" change I imagine on the UI that would make it 
clearer it is a task is to change the label "Ends" to "Due" (Or 
something else that infers a deadline...

I can see how adding the 'percent complete' etc would be more of a job.

Is it me, or do I detect that tasks are just not really considered as 
important as events?
