-listener doesn't replace the default logger.  Another point <record>
doesn't provide yet.

the command line switch?  I'm sure some contexts like GUMP or
CruiseControl wouldn't be too happy if you removed their loggers 8-)

The task could certainly take care of this.

ant -logger NullLogger

with a NullLogger class that is an empty implemenentation of the
BuildLogger interface?
