It appears that you have reformatted the files a little here - I guess that
was intentional. Rather than wading through that, I'll assume you committed
the patch exactly as Josh submitted it.

I'm not that keen on this. The patch lets you specify a token attribute at
the target level. What does copy filtering have to do with a target, really?
As well, the target just sets the value on the project object. I think the
whole copy functionality should be refactored out of Project, perhaps into

Why not make this token attribute an attribute of copy, along with a nested
filter element, so filtering can become more explicit in operation.
Something like

<copy tokendelimiter="%" ...>
   <filter token="year" value="2000"/>

Of course, we would still support the current "global" filters implicitly.

If we let this go ahead now, we create a backward compatibility issue later
