Well if you take it out of the box it doesn't work with tj3. You need to
adapt the target version and the default reports. I think it might be
time to change this since most distros do not have taskjuggler2.4
anymore (except Debian stable is still happily using it) and tj2.4
doesn't even run on Windows or Mac.

I had a look at the Fedora tj example. This is using tj to the max. It
might not be a good use case for the tj exporter :-). But to understand
your use case, could you maybe send me some example org files of yours,
so I could look at them (off-list if you like)
