That needs the possibility to pass args.
ATM the
  ant -diagnostics taskname
sounds to start the target "taskname". -help, -version and -diagnostics quit
the oata.Main.processArgs() method without any additional parameters so this
happen. But supplying a parameter for these attributes would be incosistent
to the usual
invocation syntax
  ant [options] [targetname]

IMO something like
  ant -diagnostics -- taskname
would be more consistent. And it would allow to pass additional parameters
(I think DD has
done a Bug for that :)
