Unless we want to change all property setting tasks, they have to be
real properties IMHO.  The main limitation I see without local
properties in <macrodef> is when your macro uses a property setting
task like <basename> or <available> - you currently need to provide a
unique property name to those tasks if you want to reuse the macro.

I deliberatly didn't state my preference in my last mail since I'd
like to see what needs to get resolved before we get lost in details
(again ;-).
