We've been extending the protocol for whatever requirement the GSA has had.
We added get_status early on, when we were trying to do each GSA page with
a single OMP request.

Yes, it should match the other commands better. It should be called
get_tasks. Passing it a task_id attribute should return a single task. It
should return the same data either way. Passing a details attribute should
return the detailed version.
I say we do this as part of making the protocol consistent before the 1.0
