exec & standard error output

           Summary: exec & standard error output
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.3
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: nicolas.mailhot@laposte.net


I often need to communicate with shell tasks in ant
This is usually done with exec outputproperty.

Now when the  exec-ed script works all goes well. However when it starts
outputing warnings on the error console there is no way to separate them from
normal messages in the property (even if they're harmless and we know we can
ignore them)

exec will ignore 2>/dev/null

exec should provide a mean to capture either standard or error console or both.
There is really no good reason for dumping them together - the standard/error
separation is a well established computing feature.
