<target name="${ant.project.name} : COMPILE">

This task outputs:

"${ant.project.name} : COMPILE"

instead of

"ProjectName : COMPILE".

I've tried with ant 1.7.1 and 1.8.1 and I'm not sure if this is the expected functionality, I suppose it's good that it doesn't change the name of the target.

I suggest adding a "message" attribute to the <target> element, that would be printed to the console instead of the tharget's name. It would provide for more comprehensible output instead of a generic task invocation's name.
