hi min,

 ps. the reason i couldn't make it another task is because of the

this is more academic at this point, but just to be clear on the

i have X engines running on X machines. and i'm distributing a task to some
arbitrary engine using LoadBalancedView. is there a way for me to send task
A and B and say run B on the same engine as A. if i remember target
attributes were setup during creation of an engine? i don't want to run A
on any particular engine.
