Is "Module" defined as the current buildfile?

Also, instead of having two separate tags to set a property, couldn't we
just (I think something like this might have even been suggested before)
add some attributes to <property>:
  scope="global | module | target"
  static="yes | no"
  global = workspace-wide (carried into calls to sub-buildfiles)
  module = current buildfile only (any file "include"d gets these as well)
  target = current target only
  static = immutable or mutable

The buildfile writer decides which to make what, based on the logic of how
they put the put the build together.
