... but that is not really what make does. Make shows you the command line
it will execute, not the output of the commands themselves. Similarly if
this feature were to be added to ant, it should be at the core level and not
the task level. The only reasonable output then would be to show the task
that would have been executed, its attributes and perhaps its nested
elements.
