 I didn't find anything in the archives, so either I didn't 
 search on the
 right thing, or I did just imagine someone submitting an <unset> task
 before. But it seemed like it should be a pretty straightforward little
 task to write, so I gave it a whirl -- and ended up getting bit by that
 Java can't-get-there-from-here thing when it came to accessing the
 properties table. Since I didn't have time to figure out what 
 I'd need to
 do to get around that, I figured I'd just try it in a <script> and see
 what happened -- and for some reason, it did let me do it from there:
     <script language="javascript"> <![CDATA["property_name");
 Add this to your sub-build target before the <ant> to your 
 main buildfile,
 replacing "projname" with the name of your sub-project and 
 with the name of the property you want to unset.
 But I should probably also say that it might actually be better to
 reexamine your approach and see if you even really need to go 
 this route.
