      Description

      I like the "UP-TO-DATE" messages next to tasks as they execute. Makes it easier to tell if gradle noticed a file change (mostly because I forgot to save the file in eclipse) However, given the variable length of task names, it is hard to see at a glace what is up to date and what isn't. I think it would be clearer if it was a prefix instead of a suffix. A single letter would likely also be sufficient (a la version control). So, perhaps instead of

      :TauP:compileJava UP-TO-DATE
      :TauP:processResources UP-TO-DATE
      :TauP:classes
      :TauP:jar UP-TO-DATE

      you would get

      U :TauP:compileJava
      U :TauP:processResources
      :TauP:classes
      U :TauP:jar

      Or, perhaps it is better to mark things that are actually done instead of those skipped, so W for "working"??? Also, it might be nice to have F for a failure that doesn't stop the build?

      :TauP:compileJava
      :TauP:processResources
      W :TauP:classes
      :TauP:jar

      Also, is there a reason that "classes" seems to never be "up to date"?
