I must be missing something here, aren't properties behaving exactly
the same as they do everywhere else in the build file?

the first, of course).  Properties defined outside are available in
the container and vice versa.  In what way are they different?

I agree completely - but we'll have to talk about scoping rules in the
light of Ant2 (once again 8-).
