Since the current behavior does not really qualify as
a bug, it is not safe to assume that a change to the
default behavior of a task would not break someone's
build.  So supporting this behavior using a lognoop
attribute (default true) via "public void
setLognoop(boolean lognoop) {...}" would be A Good
Thing.  If you want to prepare the patch and create an
RFE in Bugzilla someone will probably commit it.

Thanks,
Matt
