In the 1.2 release, the properties of the parent override those of the child
in <ant> and <antcall>.  Haven't tried the latest stuff from CVS yet (I'm a
chicken). :)

+1 for me on this idea, although the committers are nearing a 1.3 release so
this may have missed the train.

I've been working on a little modification to <ant> that has a
'propertyfile' attribute so the user can specify a file to load the
properties from.
