Mainly as Ant is not intended to be a scripting language and most people don't 
want to see it become one (better to use python/javascript/perl/whatever if 
you want fully script environment). Putting a return statement in <ant/> 
effectively makes <ant/> a method/funciton call which has been vetoed several 
dozen times through out ants history and my guess is it woul dbe vetoed again
