These sounds like a subroutine modifying the local variables of the caller.
Not too structured programming. Since properties are write-once, I am not
sure how scoping will solve the problem.

Wouldn't some of these issues be solved if we had a way to "import" or
"include" one project into another? It seem that a lot of the need is to be
able to have master template files with definitions and have the real
buildfiles just load stuff from there. Just like make's include directive.
