No, I meant an UNIX pipe. The syntax is not important '&' sign is also good. Its implementation
can be tricky in a multithreaded environment, but I think it is better than <antcall/>
- it  will break the normal target execution and some targets can be executed twice.

> Maybe another syntax can be added to ant: <target name="x"

And that does mean what? X depends on a or b or c? Should b be executed if a
was executed successful? Maybe we should also add something like

- <target name="x" depends="a && (b|c)"/> (execute a, if that is successful
execute b and if b fails execute c)
- <target name="x" depends="!a || (b && c)"/> (execute a. If a fails execute
b and c)
- <target name="x" depends="a[1...3]"/> (x depends on targets a1, a2 and a3)
