But you're still not saying what you're doing ;-) So there's no telling
if/how it was possible to do it in a different possibly 'better' fashion
than using <foreach>/<parallel>. Good luck whatever you're doing ;-) --DD

So, just tell me more ;-) I'm a impassionate reader :)
The problem is not the <foreach>, it is the parallel execution of
one target with different, changing properties, provided by
<foreachs> param list. The next problem is, that <foreach>
uses <antcall> and for a lot of targets (approx. there will be 1000) to
I will get a "few" problems with ant (OoM).
