i guess there is no way to indicate that a target should _always_ be
executed, regardless of what ant thinks?  this also sounds like it might
be something that could be of some use.  sure would be here, the only
other 'solution' would be to have a separate target to check for each
target that needs checking.  thats probably as confusing as it sounds
(!? ;-)
