It's not. But there's a patch for it in BugZilla, and you may be able
to add it to your SVN controlled copy of Ant via an AntLib thanks to
the PropertyHelper hooks available in Ant Core. They may require you
to "invent" a new syntax for the nested expansion and also forces to
use a property prefix, but overall it's probably a doable hack.

Would like something like ${lgc:outer%inner%} for example. (using
${inner} or @{inner} it too likely to create issues I believe).

Using <propertycopy> or a custom task of your own is also an option,
probably easier ;-) --DD
