The problem with such an approach is that you have no way to change
<timestamp> to <force> on the command line using a property. Whereas
'good old' an EnumeratedAttribute would allow you to. Some things you
never change in your builds, some others you want to be easily changed
from the command line or a properties file, and this is one of them
