I don't think so. In

<echo>
Something is missing, you need to 

        (1) install bla
        (2) run foo
</echo>

I really want to be sure whitespace gets passed to the echo
task. Likewise for newlines in the <script> task that terminate
statements in a scripting language. And I think your JPython scripts
will become totally useless if you don't take care of whitespace.
