Actually, I always thought <echo> either just echo'd its output to stdout
or redirected it to a file, if a file is specified. I never thought of
<echo> as echo'ing to the logging output. Those two things seem completely
separate to me -- the output generated by a task and the logging of that
task having been run. For example, the output of the <javac> task is the
classfile -- the logging of the <javac> task is the "[javac] ..." stuff.
