By default the Tasks plug-in scans an open document for "TODO" and "FIXME" and displays in the Tasks window the corresponding line. Having the comment symbol ("#" in R, "%" in LaTeX, etc.) and the Tasks string (say, "TODO") repeated in each line of the Tasks window can prove an unnecessary distraction, especially in documents containing many such lines.

Would it make sense to implement an option to strip all characters including the tasks string (say, '# TODO') from the lines displayed in the Tasks window? This would be similar to the initial implementation of the plug-in.

    Implemented in SVN.
    Additionally, a new column was added to show the type (i.e. the matched) keyword for this line.
