Running interactive progrsms

           Summary: Running interactive progrsms
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.4.1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: davidmccabe@mac.com


The Exec task can fork a process to do something when running a task. However, every line
of the program's output it prefixed with the string "[exec]". Also, the standard input stream
for the program seems to be /dev/null, by which I mean  that I can't type in the thing. This
is usually fine, however, I sometimes need to run an interactive program from within a task,
such as to ask the user for configuration settings, or the run a debugger. Perhaps the '<exec>'
element should support a 'interactive' attribute, which would cause the program to be run
as if from a user shell.
