I think this is a fair criticism. Rake seems to very frequently used
for tasks other than compilation because for a Ruby project it's handy
to define tasks using a familiar language and libraries. e.g. hack
something together to enumerate TODOs in your source repository, or
preprocess and generate your docs etc.
