Hi,

It could be very nice if it were possible to suppress the output from a target,
with a silent attribute. As a build file grows in size, the 'trivial' 
information can be overwhelming.

example:
<target name="sometarget" silent="true">
   <echo message="This line will not appear in log because of silent"/>
</target>

Furthermore it would also be very nice if it were possible to only debug a 
certain target, this could also be done with a attribute. 

example:
<target name="sometarget" debug="true">
   <echo message="Everything this target does will be debugged to system.out"/>
</target>



best regards
Thomas Engelschmidt
