It used to be a parse time error Steve.

Now that everything's a UE however, you'll only discover the 'syntax'
error at runtime, and only if executing that particular bit of the build
at that.

I guess some might consider this a little regression of sort. I've been
caught by it myself in the past, and just last Friday a colleague
reported an error in a rarely used target from an old build used
everyday by CruiseControl. Such an error couldn't have stayed hidden
with Ant 1.5.x.

I know we've gained much by going the everything-a-UE route, but let's
not forget about this little behavior change, and keep an eye for it.
