Sometimes it's too verbose as some ant tasks are too talkative IMO,
f.e. copy, cvs ..
Ant core has features to set the loglevel for the whole build but lacks
a feature that allows to set the loglevel _inside_ the script for
selective tasks only

But there are solutions, like own loggers or special tasks =
years ago i read about a setloglevel task on a blog - don't remember
where - so the idea for that task is not mine.
Only had to change the code that has been posted a bit to make it work

The task is very simple, but very useful, see source =

This little task should be part of ant core
- use it quit often for chatty :-) tasks - but i don't know
how to get it into ant core, and finally it's not grown in my brain
originally ..
