Subject Re: Feature request: ifbool/unlessbool

+1 to this feature request.

I am curious to know. why if and unless attributes in 'target' work the 
way they do, i.e only check existence of the property and not its value.

Currently ant-contrib's if tag has to be used to accomplish this sort of 
control over build execution.
