Adding tasks for mobile development

I'd like to add tasks to my gradle script to do things like:
- package ipa-debug - package ipa-debug-interpreter - package apk ...

Since the packageMobile tasks can of course only handle one of those packaging types, I'd like to add additional tasks so I can also simply launch them with a double click (using Gradle plugin in Eclipse).

I'm just starting and learning Groovy and Gradle, so I'm not really sure how to add such tasks.
Can I somehow call the packageMobile task and override properties?

Any help would be very appreciated.
Thx guys,

    What may be even better suited for what you want to do is using multiple configurations. Maxim has an excellent explanation of this on his blog, which you can find here:
