No it doesn't - because I explicitly have failonerror set to No.

I'm using ANT to do completely unattended builds of more than 70
distinct applications - I can't abort the build of the last 50 just
because #19 doesn't compile.

What I need is to be able to detect whether the build worked and take
appropriate action - in this case, generating different messages for the
log file.

At present I do this by detecting whether the appropriate output file
was created, but this is a hack. Being able to work directly from the
result code of the compiler would be ideal.
