How to best extend the jacoco plugin

i’d like to have the gradle jacoco plugin extended so it can be a dump client, the ant task description is here: an alternative is shown here: . i asked for help at the jacoco list:!topic/jacoco/uZ7qfPOWPgo but marc basically referred to get in contact here.

the source code for the plugin is here, isn’t it: ? i’d be really glad if somebody more experienced could give hints if and if yes how to fit this in?
