Determine "level" of target from prefix in target name

           Summary: Determine "level" of target from prefix in target name
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.1
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: j.c.yip@computer.org


Currently, main targets that show up in ant -projecthelp are determined by 
whether or not the target has a description attribute.  This is somewhat 
annoying when I have target names that are pretty much self-explanatory and I 
don't want to bother with a description.

I've observed an interesting convention where non-main targets are prefixed 
with a "-".  This really improves the ability to glance at build file source 
and know what are the main targets and what are the helper targets.

So what I propose is that -projecthelp uses a standard (and/or configurable) 
prefix to determine non-main targets.
