Need attribute for target tag to indicate hidden/internal target

Yes thogh this is an overloading of the meaning of the description tag by the
ide's. It seems wrong to put 2 meanings on one tag.

Net beans does not hide any targets. 

They display all top level elements, including properties, and taskdefs, and I
suspect with the advent of top level tasks (which I never use because of the
access control pattern I describe in bug 22020) this will become even more messy
in net beans. If someone here is active in netbeans some additional special
handling of antfiles would be good. Heaven only knows if I will ever have the
time to start developing for net beans too :)

What the IDE's are doing is guessing. It would be nice if we could tell them so
they don't have to guess :)
