It s not advisable to create a new project unless there is a specific reason. If a new project
is created, the task cannot access any of the properties or references defined in the project
under which task is defined. 

If you want to execute your task under a new project all you need is to put the task under
a separate target and the invoke the target using the antcall task.

If you really need to create a new Project object, i think it is not sufficient to just create
an instance of the Project object. Look at the source code of antcall task to see how a new
project is created.
