Subject Re: [PATCH] Added "ant.target.name" property

I could, but it seemed inconsistent that Ant has an internal property defining the 
project name (ant.project.name), but no internal property to define the target name 
(ant.target.name).  I felt the patch addressed an inconsistency in Ant's design (albeit 
a minor one).

I'm not sure I follow you here.  Dynamic templating how?  I guess I've always associated dynamic
templating with XSLT, probably because that's the way I do it :-)

Thanks,
Kyle
