Well known to those of us who've been around long enough to remember
the "should properties get expanded in the depends attribute?" - errm
- discussions.

At the time it was a conscious decision that properties get expanded
inside the if and unless but no other attributes of target.

In general, it is probably little-known but IMHO not too useful
either, or is it?
