You could have an environment for each task and place your objects for
each task in its environment.

Note that this is getting close to object oriented ideas where each
is an object containing your R variables and methods and the proto package
can be used to facilitate that:

task1 <- proto(var = 0, addx = function(this, x) this$var <- this$var + x)
task1$var # 0
task1$var # 3
