Yes, this should be doable.  The PlainListener really only is a first
start so I could see the results and validate the design.

In JUnit I tend to do so by simply changing the name of the method
(prefix with no) and even in NUnit which supports an [Ignore]
attribute to disable text I find myself commenting out the [Test]
attribute more often than adding the ignore one.  But that could be

I wouldn't want to add any new attributes to <target> and would want
to keep all information inside of the build file under test instead of
the antunit task.  Given those constraints, I don't see how we could
