ANT 1.5alpha does expand properties in <sql>.
This broke my system since I had SQL string constants containing '$'.

Please do not add this behaviour to <style> in XSLT $ is a very meaningful
character, if you need to pass values you can use <param> entries for that.

Actually something like that may had been a better solution for <sql> also.

Then one could use in the file one of the already exixting notations to 
refer to parameters in sqlscripts, like &n which is used in Oracle.
