[Patch] to allow to run several targets without rerunning their dependencies





------- Additional Comments From ddevienne@lgc.com  2004-03-05 15:04 -------
When I wrote by-design, I meant it is coded up like that. Hence, it can't be 
changed for BC reasons. I never said it was the good design decision ;-) I 
often execute more than one target from the CLI, and run afool of this too.

For critial target, I guard against re-execution with a property, since 
properties are still shared (unlike the target dependency analysis).

I agree with Jose Alberto. <[sub]ant[call]> should be made to work the same, 
except I wouldn't override the meaning of the target attribute, and add a new 
targets attributes. For BC reasons, again, . You can currently call a target 
with a comma in its name with <[sub]ant[call]>, so supporting multi-target 
calling using the 'target' attribute would not be BC. --DD

So +1 to the feature of that patch. (haven't look at the code itself).
