  +<b>Important:</b> the <code>if</code> and <code>unless</code>
attributes only 
  +enable or disable the target to which they are attached. They do not control
  +whether or not targets that a conditional target depends upon get executed. 
  +In fact, they do not even get evaluated until the target is about to be executed,
  +and all its predecessors have already run.
   <p>The optional <code>description</code> attribute can be used to provide
a one-line description of this target, which is printed by the
   <nobr><code>-projecthelp</code></nobr> command-line option. Targets
   without such a description are deemed internal and will not be listed,
