#' Minimal unit of computation in Ruigi. A task is a bundle that contains dependencies,
#' a target (every node should produce one and only one target), and a function that maps the
#' dependencies to this target. Ruigi will organize and determine the right order of computation
#' of multiple nodes formed together into one pipeline.
