Except for the tradition of having non-public targets' names start with a dash.

Restrict? More like caution, that's all. Lets not open Pandora's box
just yet on target dependencies, and provide a useful yet limited
extensible target (target-group), along with all the fixes Antoine
mentions. Lets see how it fairs in the wild and what users are
claiming for to make it more useful. This allows to release sooner
(1.7.1 is 18 months old), without rushing what is admittedly a more
radical change to Ant's target dependency handling.
