It has been discussed and implemented before (under the name incremental and 
continuous) however never added to Ant core as it caused some serious 
ClassLoader errors. Ant2 will implement it. Ant1 maybe able to implement it 
based on Conors recent work to ClassLoader .. not sure haven't looked at it ;)
