Could you explain where this is useful and not possible with what we
already have. Usually when I want a not I do something like

<available property="foo-property" classname="org.biz.MyClass" />

<target name="foo-target-with-not" unless="foo-property" />
<target name="foo-target-without-not" if="foo-property" />

Cheers,

Pete
