Issue Description:

The documentation for withUnsafeCurrentTask says:

Instead, use the task property of UnsafeCurrentTask to access an instance of Task that you can store long-term and interact with outside of the closure body.

Problem: UnsafeCurrentTask has no public task property (and shouldn't as far as I can tell), so the documentation is incorrect.

This issue still exists as of 2022-04-26. The documentation is wrong, whereas the doc comment in the Swift source code is much better:

/// There's no safe way to retrieve a reference to the current task
/// and save it for long-term use.
