mmm.. I have a question then.
What happens when there is a target AND target-less elements ? is that
allowed ?
If yes, what about elements order then ? is it a problem to do the following
<target name="x"/>
At this minute, I'm not that much convinced about the interest of target
less build file but I believe you have a very valid reason to think about
it. It is just that right now, I cannot see really what will be the benefit
compared to default="something".
