Works for me here. We are already using a specialized property 
interceptor, and it seems to work fine... except when properties are 
passed down in <ant>. Intercepted ones aren't.

Dunno about IntrospectionHelper (could you please explain a use case?), 
but I've already found a need for references.

For example I would need to use the ReferenceHelper to give a classpath 
In concrete, for every "cent", ie plugin, I import in Ant, I need to 
define some default dirs and default classpath. The first are done with 
  an interceptor, while the second I still cannot do.
