It is a feature, but many people would like to have it implemented
differently. Without breaking existing functionality I think it is possible
to add "ANT A,B" syntax to execute A and B without reexecuting common
targets, by creating a temporary pseudo target that depends from A and B and
executing it.

That sounds like a clear bug that needs to be fixed.
