In Google Calendar, is there any way to add a task, rather than an event, via the quick add feature?

Quick add is accessed by pressing q or clicking the down arrow on the Create button in the left column.

It doesn't look like it, but I'd love to be proven wrong. Tasks is overdue for some development love. – Al E. Oct 14 '11 at 15:30

You can't quick add a task on the calendar. Only an event or appointment.
