I'd like to challenge that veto, Pete.

What's your proposal to solve the use case of beanutils' all target?
<http://jakarta.apache.org/cvsweb/index.cgi/~checkout~/jakarta-commons/beanutils/build.xml?rev=1.8&content-type=text/plain>

The use case is simple, make sure we do a "clean" build.

As current Ant will execute targets that don't depend on each other in
left-to-right order, there may be quite a few build system that rely
on this.  We need some way to keep this feature, or some equivalent
functionality.
