Yeah, or I could install the Tasker beta app factory. Not interested. If I'm going to develop something to do a specific action, then I'll just work it out in native code instead of using Tasker as an interpreter. If the interpreter were user-friendly, then it might be worth it.
As such, I can't recommend Tasker to anyone unless they have 1. $7 USD to blow for marginal benefit, or 2. a bunch of time to waste learning a new system within a system that if you don't get bored of will lead to recreating the wheel over and over with useless "tasks".
Tasker is a great idea-- almost like an AutoIT or AutoHotkeys for Android-- that has a really cruddy interface. Even if they just took ICS or JB design guidelines and applied it to the app there would be a 100% improvement.
