Then I want to have general dependency checking in the <java>, <exec>
and <execon> tasks, since they are used to invoke translation utilites.

I don't like the idea to have to write a separate task for each
translation utility, just because I want basic dependency checking.

For the <java>, <exec> and <execon> tasks, you should be able to
specify one target file and a Fileset of source files, and the task
should only be executed if at least one of the source files is newer
than the target file. For <execon>, you already have the source file
