RFE: ignoreMissingBuildFiles option for subant

           Summary: RFE: ignoreMissingBuildFiles option for subant
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6Alpha (nightly)
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: gus.heck@olin.edu


I was just fooling around with subant, and became really annoyed that it failed
every time it couldn't find a build file, but I definately wanted it to fail if
any of the subbuilds failed. 

I decided it was faster and prevented future maintainence to patch subant than
specifically exclude directories that happened to live at the same level, but
don't yet have build files or don't need them. 

So the request is for the addition of a ignoreMissingBuildFiles atribute for
subant. It should of course default to false to preserve the existing behavior,
and when true cause subant to simply ignore any specified build file that is not
found. (thus ignoring both a missing (default) build.xml, and any explicit build
file that doesn't exist) so here comes the patch...
