Already checked the batch change functionality - it lacks the power to
change visibility / permissions on tasks (unless I missed something).
In terms of the Conduit API - I expected that to be the case, just
don't have a script to hand to do it just yet :)

Hmm, where is this permission found? I haven't yet found one that
allows you to restrict the ability to override default permissions,
and it's one i'd rather like to find (I know Spaces does have some
capability in this department though).
