Ant executes targets that are dependencies of other targets which are not selected because
of an "if" attribute.

I guess that makes sense.  I was thinking in terms of the dependencies being 
executed as part of the target, and therefore the property being checked 
before the dependencies were checked.  To a certain degree, this is true, 
since targets will only be executed if they are direct or indirect 
dependencies of the default or passed in target, but that once the targets to 
be executed are resolved, the dependency tree only governs the order, and 
targets are executed independently of eachother.

I see now that this is clear in the documentation.  I should have paid better 
attention, sorry for the nuisance :)
