Custom Task Providers for the SAP NW GW Task Gateway : who's doing it ?

There is a single post available today explaining what is involved in writing a custom task provider for the Task Gateway.

I was wondering whether there are already people who have tried to implement such a custom provider. A quick search through the SAP Store learns that at least within the SAP partner eco-system, there has so far been 0 attempts to create a commercial task provider implementation for the Task Gateway.

As we are currently considering such an implementation for a non-SAP workflow system, it would be great to hear from others about their experiences.

There is another confusing piece in the SAP Help Portal regarding custom task providers. It is a section in the documentation not for the Task Gateway, BUT the Workflow Services. Up until SAP NW Gateway SP06, there was this chapter, entitled "Task Provider Framework Capabilities", which appears to provide yet another set of APIs to build a custom task provider, with the added capability so it seems to also support push notificatoins. This raises the question : is this API no longer supported in later versions of the gateway and how does this framework relate to the Task Gateway APIs available to build a custom task provider.
