If you set the property AGAIN, after the condition, it won't reset the
property if it was previously set to "true", BUT, it will set it if it is
still null.

Subject: echo true or false

The <available>, <condition>, etc. set of tasks all work by setting a
property if a condition is met.  My problem is that I would like to echo
the results of this test.  
<condition property=">
	... whatever tests
<echo message="${}"/>

If the property is set,
"true" will be echoed.  If it hasn't been set, "${}" will be

Pretty ugly.  I would like "false" to be echoed.

I would like the ability to set a property true or false depending on
the results of a conditional test.

What is the easiest way to accomplish what I am after?
