-0 on the concept; my preference would be to let the function prove it's 
usefulness in EasyAnt & move it into core later if it truly proves useful

-1 on the "phase" name
+1 on using "target-group" for the name

EasyAnt phases

Hi all,

EasyAnt has a concept named "phase" which is some special sort of
target.  The main differences:

* is always empty

* its depends list is open for other targets to modify, i.e. targets
  may add themselves as dependencies to a phase.

It has been suggested to rename "phase" to "target-group".

Without going into implementation details, do we want to add the
concept itself to Ant's core?

If we don't I'll volunteer to help the EasyAnt people to hook the
concept into Ant without patching Ant itself.
