Perhaps we could extend Task to set an exit status property? 
Probably, this would mean changing

public void execute()

to

public int execute()

and changing all the subclasses.  Better to get that done now, rather
than wait until the number of tasks is too large.

Another possibility would be to do this at the Target level.  Then a
simple if="last.success" or similar is all that would be required to
check the return value.

I've not looked into the coding required for these changes, but I
wouldn't mind giving it a go.
