The tstamp task with the format nested element does this.  Read its 
documentation for more help, but here's an example :

        <tstamp prefix="init">
            <format property="ymd" pattern="yyyy-MM-dd"/>

Now there's a property init.ymd which holds a string like "2006-10-16".  
Tstamp itself also creates other properties by default, but as shown you 
can make your own with the format nested element.
