I submitted a patch with this that enables recursive property expansion. Matt, can
you explain aspect of Ant that this would break? I sense there's some "fu" surrounding
tasks being able to chain property management, but in my few hours coding the patch
I didn't find any permanent data structures being neglected by the way I short-circuited
and changed parsing.

Please excuse me if I missed prior discussion on this or misunderstood it.
