Re: [mylyn-dev] Checklists with Mylyn

Looking in the workspace/.mylyn/tasks.xml.zip file, I find the tasks
which are stored in an XML file.  In the XML file, I see a Task entity
with a "Handle"  attribute.

Can you use some form of XPath or similar query mechanism to reference it maybe?

I guess to truly answer this one, I need to work on understand how the
XML Dom handling APIs work in Eclipse.
