grunt copy support? #49

I'm looking to copy some files from an arbitrary project folder into the "generated" and "dist" folders when either "lineman run" or "lineman build" are run, respectively. I'm not super familiar with grunt, so I think I need to include grunt-contrib-copy, configure it and use it, but I'm not sure where to start or what how to best integrate with lineman.

I don't need any "watch" process to handle detecting if files have changed at all in these custom folders, but it would be nice if that was easy to do.

Can someone comment on how to do such a workflow?

Added some documentation around grunt tasks to the wiki.

Cheers. prependTasks and appendTasks are new features and are exactly what I was asking about when I asked this question. Lineman has really grown and I'm loving it. Great job.
