    439439  * If a task has an SF dependency on another task, its computedFinish is the other task's computedStart plus lag.  The task's computedStart is the computedFinish minus duration.

     441NOTE: A scheduling algorithm which handled only FS dependencies would be a ''very'' useful first step.

    441443 * Handle resource limitations[[br]]Tasks assigned to the same resource but with no other dependency between them and no assigned dates must be sequenced to keep from overloading the resource.  A comparison function can be used to determine which task should go first (as in many sorting algorithms).  {{{sequenceTasks(taskA,taskB)}}} would return -1 if taskA should go first, 1 if taskB should go first or 0 if it doesn't matter.  ''The scheduler should not be aware of the policy implemented in the comparison function.'' Possible criteria for sequencing the tasks include:
