First of all it works in ANT1.4.1.
(Isn't it a shame that we do not even know if the features we add actually work?, so much
for testing).

Second, the following snip is doing useful things:

    <condition ... />
        <path id='myID' ..../>
        <path id='myID' .../>

and I could have use <sequential> or anything else instead of <if>.

Third, Target implements TaskContainer, should we disallow them there as well.
