the value of the Project.replaceProperties(...) method then?
The project.replaceProperties() is used by RuntimeConfigurable to 
replace the properties
in a task's attributes just before the task is called with the attributes.

Note that this only happens for attributes, for embedded text (cdata 
etc), the replaceProperties method is not
called by the ant runtime, it is up the the individual task to call it 
if required - most tasks do, (<echo/> for example has this
    public void addText(String msg) {
        message += getProject().replaceProperties(msg);
) and some do not - for example <script>.
