What kind of other attributes would that be? You know that Java and
therefore Ant doesn't have any knowledge of file ownerships or
permissions for example.

If you can restrict yourself to (parts of) filenames, Ant 1.2 is going
to have a fileset datatype which can be used in several places -
including an <execon> task that calls an external command with the
files as argument.

This is not exactly storing them into a property but this might be
added at some point as well.
