And you need to replace @foo@ or &&foo with something meaningful
inside Ant as the scripting tool of your RDBMS would do, right?  OK.

The filter mechanism wouldn't work for &&foo anyway, would it?

OK, I see that <sql> could and should be improved to support something
like this, but don't think we should couple it to filters at all.

I agree that simple ${} expansion is not enough, thank you and Michael
for explaining it to me.
