I've used (at a previous job) <subant> extensively, with several
levels of sub-projects and many  "leaf" projects as well, yet your
request implies that you set failonerror="false" in <subant>, which is
the reason you have to jump thru all these hoops to try to find out
a-posteriori when a sub-project failed.

I've always been a proponent that if *anything* fails, the *whole*
build fails. If you were to take this approach, we'd see how it
simplifies your Ant build. This approach, coupled with a
SubBuildLogger that tells you which build a target belongs to is all I
ever needed with my large builds.

Sorry, not a direct answer to your question, more a "change your
approach" advice. Good luck, --DD
