The <os family="..."> subelement of the <condition> task
is very nice.  However, is there any way to set a variable
to the os family?  (ie., is there maybe a ${}
pre-defined property)?

In a lot of cases, you don't care what actual os you're
on, but just what type of os, and you may want to keep
this in a variable somewhere.

the os family would also be useful in the exec command
instead of having to have an exec for every different type
of windows or unix operating system.

<exec ... osfamily="windows" executable="test.bat" />
<exec ... osfamily="unix"    executable="" />
