Of course the parameters need to be replaced. The point is they 
shouldn't look like properties. This way they can't be confused with 
properties.  An alternate form to ${foo} is all that is needed. Just 
search for a diferent pattern... {@foo} or (@foo) or @{foo} or %{foo} or 
$[foo] or really anything that isn't ${foo}. Dominique did also point 
out that (@foo) and {@foo} are already commonly used in other contexts 
that build authors will be familliar with.
