I was looking to this kind of features when I started my build file
developement. I solved my need by doing dirty antcall.

I am very happy to see this in ant core now, and I will adapt my build
file as soon as possible ! :))
And it should solve some of my properties issues.

Thanks, it is a good job! (Like everybody's one) 

I am using Ant for two years and i never find real blocker issues, or
already closed in cvs. This kind of new features give me the desire for
taking an active part.

Thanks everybody!
