    That can fail too - if a new task gets created between the uncharge
    and the charge.

    What we need is a res_counter_move_charge(A, B, amount) function which will:

    - locate C, the nearest common ancestor of A and B
    - lock up the chain from B up to but not including C, adding the new charge
    - unlock up the chain from B to C
    - uncharge along the chain from A up to but not including C (not sure
    how much locking is needed there since there's no need for roll back).
