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

The first request I have no ideological problem with, but what option to use?  
Most short options are a single letter, and for example, "-singlecheck", while 
longer than "-noredo", is no longer than "-diagnostics", and indeed is shorter 
than "-propertyfile" or "-inputhandler".

As for the -nosinglecheck idea, I think I can see how you would want to use it, 
but I can't say that I really think it's necessary to basic Ant.  Not 
specifying the option would be equivalent to specifying a negative version of 
the same option.  In fact, I changed "-noredo" to the hardly more descriptive "-
singlecheck" due to a reluctance on my part to use such a "negative option".  I 
would have preferred a boolean argument to two different forms of the same 
option, but did not because of the implementation of Ant's command-line 
options.  This is very straightforward; for example to use the -s option 
without specifying a buildfile name, -s has to be the last option given.  This 
makes me reluctant to solve the issue by adding an optional argument to this 
new option.

In summary, if these issues came to a committer vote, my responses would be:

[+1] adding -singlecheck (or equivalent) option to work in conjunction with the 
new Target sorting options on Project
[-0] adding a short form of -singlecheck
[-1] complementing -singlecheck with -nosinglecheck

Matt
