You took the words out of my mouth. I was just going
to say that for things like <iterate> or <foreach>
what we need is a better scoping of properties.
We really do not manage scopes today, what we do when
we invoke <ant> or <antcall> is to copy all the
<property>s from one Project to the next.

Once we have a well defined stack of scopes, it would
be easy to implement local scopes and all the rest.
