OK, I agree that we are talking about different things, then.

keep-going seems a better name, not sure whether it is the best
possible name (I've always been extremely bad with names and Ant has
suffered from this several times 8-).

I'm fine with the revised implementation as well. I'd print the
exception's stack trace with a debug or even verbose loglevel in the
catch block for those exceptions that will not be rethrown, though.

Maybe <ant>, <subant> and <antcall> (<*ant*>?) should get a new
attribute as well?
