Thanks a lot - this also makes <condition> so much more poweful.

There are some things that we need to talk about, but let's first
start playing with it.

The things I want to talk about:

* I think the task should set a property instead of throwing a
BuildException in the timeout case - leave <fail> to <fail>, more on
this in a different thread I'm going to initiate.

* <http> could be generalized for arbitrary URLs, ftp for example.
Maybe we should even merge it into <available>?

* I have removed the hasPassed flags, we need to think about whether
we really want them, and if so, how we can generalize them.
