TallowTask source code

We need tallow task to generate a template wxs from a binary distribution to easy the burden to create wxs from hand. Such as

<dn:tallow target="product.wxs" source="product"/>

Based on WixTask.java, I created TallowTask.java to add this extra bit, I have tested it on my own project, the source code and html file are attached.
