Hi Peter,

I think I've found a case where I can't replace my <antcall>'s with 
<macrodef>.  Currently, the target I am calling via <antcall> has 
dependencies.  If I use <macrodef> to make the call, how do I get the other 
targets to run.  Everything has to happen in the <macrodef>, and unless I 
use <if> <then> tasks within <macrodef>, I won't be able to convert this

I'm not opposed to using <if> <then> tasks, but this isn't a native Ant 
solution.  The only way I can see this working is to have <macrodef> 
support target dependencies.  Thoughts?  Am I missing something?
