Ant2 is supposed to provide a way in form of user preferences (no, no
implementation and no schedule yet 8-).  This means you can give
default values for attributes that have not been specified explicitly.

<property name="javac.debug" value="off" />
<javac debug="${debug}" ... />

and you can say 

anf -Djavac.debug=true

on the command line to enable debug for all javac tasks at once.  But
you still have to list these attributes yourself.
