Someone just submitted a patch a few hours to do just that may make it into
build soon (hopefully) - otherwise if you got a recent version there is a
task fail that can be used to do the same. You can make it exist in a
target that has unless="my-property" so that it will not get executed when
property is set. Then just add it into dependencie of all targets.
