Ant should offer hierarchical resource containment

           Summary: Ant should offer hierarchical resource containment
           Product: Ant
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: curt@developerx.com


This is an RFE.

A task should be able to place limits on the resources used that apply to all
tasks invoked by that task.  Intervening JVM and other process creation
shouldn't rescind these limits.

Here's the scenario that this addresses.

Imagine a large number of projects.  Each one is in a sibling directory.  A
top-level build.xml executes the build.xml of each project.  The resource limits
come into play, so that each project build can be confined to its own directory
and limited to a fixed time period.  Without the resource limits, the top-level
build has to trust each project build to complete in a timely fashion and won't
mess with its siblings stuff.

While there are platform specific mechanisms to accomplish this, there doesn't
seem to be a platform independent way of doing this in Ant.
