Not that it matters, but this was what I meant:

  <target name="t1">
    <if name="some.property">
      <task1>
      <task2>
    </if>
  </target>

I seriously doubt we'll ever see (need?) nested tasks,
so I don't expect this to happen.  But since it was so
easy to write the patch, I don't see why it's a big
issue.

How about it folks?  It doesn't break your current
scripts or change the way you work, and you don't have
to use it if you don't want it, so why not include it?
