OK, I shouldn't have spoken without reading the proposal then 8-)

keep-alive to me doesn't imply skip the remaining tasks from the same
target when one task fails.  To me it meant that all tasks would be
executed, even if a previous task had failed.

What you describe might then be best covered by fail-on-error at the
target level.  fail-on-error would be true for the tasks inside the
target, but the target itself would swallow the BuildException.
