Need attribute for target tag to indicate hidden/internal target

           Summary: Need attribute for target tag to indicate
                    hidden/internal target
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.4
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: apache@ia-inc.com


I use my IDE (NetBeans) for most ant work.  There are times when I need to create intermediate

targets for the sake of modularity and code reuse.  Unfortunately, all these extra targets
show up 
as first-rate targets to be executed in my IDE.  I've tried various target naming conventions
to help 
highlight/lowlight primary/intermediate targets, but it's not great.

If there were an attribute flag to indicate intermediate/private targets, then IDEs could
optionally 
hide these targets. 

For example:

<target name="foo" private="true">

This might also be useful if you ever add a "list targets" feature to the ant CLI.  For example:

ant -list [file]   (list all primary targets)
ant -list -all [file]   (list private targets too)
