Sounds like a reasonable addition. One would probably want to do
${} replacement on text nested into <echo> then, right?

Conor has some stuff in his "unfinished works" that would allow any
task to be called in a different thread than the main build

in the same JVM is waiting on Runtime.exec to finish on all OS's - but
this could probably be the solution.
