           Summary: ${property_value} doesn't expand in description (FEATURE
                    REQUEST)
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.5
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: AntUnit
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: dennis.bednar@comcast.net


Given this small demo file:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<project default="compile">

	<property name="jarfile" value="Hello.jar" />

	<target name="init" description="initialization stuff">
		<echo>FAKE init step</echo>
	</target>
	
	<target name="compile" description="compile java stuff step and builds 
${jarfile}"
		depends="init">
		<echo>FAKE compile step</echo>
		<echo>building ${jarfile}</echo>
	</target>

</project>

when I run "ant -p" i see this:

Buildfile: build.xml

Main targets:

 compile  compile java stuff step and builds ${jarfile}
 init     initialization stuff
Default target: compile

I expect the ${jarfile} to be expanded in the description.  It would be
nicer ...
