Nope, Fiasco schedules Threads and they are therefore used to
represent the "task" concept that you may know from scheduling.
Fiasco's Tasks are address spaces and do not execute anything
themselves. Instead Threads belong to specific Tasks and execute their
code within the context of the respective address space.
