Glenn and Stefan have already pretty much covered what I would've said,
but I thought I'd add a couple of corrections...

"Target" can be either a noun or a verb. "Clean" can be an adjective, an
adverb, or a verb, but not a pronoun.

Okay, enough for the English lesson... :)  Unless someone gets to it
before I do, once I get my new computer set up (and I get back to
connecting through my DSL), I'll revisit the part of the doc that covers
targets and try to add a bit more in the way of explaining the concept as
it pertains to Ant. (Actually, Glenn's and Stefan's responses were clear
enough that they could probably just be incorporated into the doc.)
