Keep the properties set after <ant> or <antcall>.

           Summary: Keep the properties set after <ant> or <antcall>.
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.7Alpha (nightly)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: adagoubard@chello.nl


At the moment if you have a target that define some properties, the only way to
call it in order to get the values is by using "depends".
 If you use <ant> or <antcall> all properties set in the target are local.
 That's why it would be nice to have a "keepProperties" (or whatever) attribute
to the <ant> and <antcall> task.
  
  Example:
  <antcall target="define-versions" keepProperties="true"/>
 This feature has been discussed on Ant developer mailing list at
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?t=108369006500001&r=1&w=2

Note that Dale Anson mailed at
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=ant-dev&m=108377046631849&w=2
that already several tasks exist in AntContrib and Antelop to perform this feature.
This means that there is a real need for this functionality.
