Subject Console output for exec

For those of you who think about these things, is there any god reason why
the System.out and System.err of processes that are spawned by <exec> when
spawn="true" aren't reparented to the main ANT process's?

I wrote a <spawn> task pre-1.6, which was basically a hack of <exec> with
the waiting for the termination of the stream from the child process

I'm happy to try and re-fit this to 1.6.2 and submit a patch, but before I
do it can anyone think of why this would be a fundamentally wrong thing to
