           Summary: Need support for control tasks that perform regular
                    control operations
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.5
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: pvarma@brocade.com


There is a big requirement to have the following tasks:

- if
- while/for
- case

Without these, it becomes ugly to set properties and create new tasks. These are
all ugly workarounds. It is understandable that ant is not a scripting language
but it does not appear to be any worthwhile language if it cannot support
control statements.
