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

I hate the current behavior just as anyone else, but there is a BC issue here 
and really I see few ways out. For an example just think what the following 
does today:

ant clean test1 clean test2 clean test3 ....

Assuming the target clean just wipes clean the build, then the above list of 
targets will have very different behavior if the way targets are executed from 
the command line changes.

So, BC is a real issue. This is why the proposal uses "," to indicate
execution without dependency reexecution: "clean,test1,clean,test2,clean,test3"
which is equivalent to: "clean,test1,test2,test3".

Alternatively, we could provide an option "-noredo" (or something like that)
that will treat the list of targets as comma separated. So if one wants that 
behavior all the time just stick the option in ANT_OPTS in your environment.
