I started writing sandcastle tasks, but I'm having second thoughts. I use the SandCastle Help File Builder (http://www.codeplex.com/SHFB) to configure the help files for various projects I work on. The obvious benefit is the NDoc style UI which I find really helpful. The SHFB project provides a command line tool whereby you simply run an exe and pass the shfb file, with a few optional parameters.

So what benefit would additional tasks that interface directly with SandCastle provide? I think the SHFB provides an efficient mechanism for generating help files. It may be helpful to provide a small wrapper task, but I see this as a small benefit over a simple exec out to the console app.

Am I missing something? How do others feel?
