Need attribute for target tag to indicate hidden/internal target

Thanks Steve... I see your point, but I agree with Gus: I think that making the description
attribute 
perform dual duties is not the optimal design.  Private targets may still benefit from descriptions.
 
For example, I'd hope that my IDE could turn on/off visibility of private targets for editing
vs. 
running.  When visible (e.g. during editing) I think the private task descriptions have merit,
for 
example, it could be displayed in a status label.  (At least that's the way I'd code NetBeans
;-)

Regarding the -projecthelp argument, you're 100% right... thanks.  But I may open a future

enhancement request to deprecate that name... kinda long, and not intuitive enough (for me
at 
least) to understand it when I was quickly looking for it.
