That's what Ant-Contrib's target does (its name is <runtarget> I think).

Yes, I think it's a bit dangerous, as it might run afoul of the target
dependency management of Ant. If you limit yourself to calling
dependency-less target, you should be all right, but it's probably
better to use <macrodef>, and even <antcall> IMHO. But the choice is
yours. --DD
