Is that a -1 for the whole idea or just for the current patch? I agree 
that forcing the use of the name 'dynamic' was not such a good idea.
Using 
the same way to configure the name of the dynamic target as is used for 
specifying the default target would change that. 

The "too implicit" argument remains, I guess. 

As I see it, using 'ant dynamic -Ddynamic.target=com.foo.bar' is not the 
same thing because that would bypass the com.foo.bar target if it
existed.
