Having a detach attribute (or similar) for exec (and likewise for java
with fork="true") has been proposed several times - and I don't think
anybody would veto out a platform independent solution for this (or a
platform dependent solution for all major platforms that would be
hidden behind something like the Execute class).

IOW, I don't think it is scheduled for Ant2 nor ruled out.
