No, it will not work - properties are replaced at parse time, it was a
hack (usefull I think). You can have run-time effect only if _every_ task
is modified to do a replace() on it's attributes before execute. ( that
was the reason the replace is now at parse time). 

I agree we need to do the effort ( sooner is better ), but I don't have
the time right now.
