Task "Available" should fill the property with concrete filename

basically, yes, but:
- maybe yes, although I cant figure out how to make pathconvert do a lookup for
the file
- it would anyway be much less straightforward
- it would probably mean introducing just another property name, thus increasing
the property jungle
- there is a bad issue with pathconvert: it is not crossplatform. According to
documentation, when using pathcovert, you must always know which is the target
platform, because you either have to explicitly specify it, or you must specify
separator chars which are platform dependent. Therefore I would have to write a
sequence of many pathconvert tasks each equipped with condition checking one
specific platform.

I believe that good approach is that simple things are doable by simple means -
which hopefuly my suggestion defines.
