Yes, this is the core part of Lake I want to liberate and make easier
to use without all the baggage, to support dependency-based
programming, as discussed in Martin Fowler's excellent article:
The manual does show how Lake can also do rake-like programming:
task = target
As I mention, the anonymous function stuff is more noisy in Lua which
is less syntactically flexible than Ruby for DSL creation.
