Modelling Targets as tasks would be cool. We could look at having a separate 
Ant1CompatTargetTask, which provided if/unless/depends attributes like Ant1, 
without having to do the stylesheet hackery.

This, combined with some antlib namespace stuff I'm thinking about (more 
later), may allow us to run Ant1 build files directly, without the build file 
transformation we currently require.
