Thanks for the quick reply Francis.

But factually this is exactly what I have been using for last few weeks and
when I saw that <fail> task already has a support for "if" and "unless"
attribute from that very moment I started thinking that why can't <echo>
task also support them in the same way.

In short, I ams looking for alternatives to do that rather I am suggesting a
small feature that will be helpful to many of us.

Regards,
SacTiw.
