It does - AFAIK. 

The code is in ant/proposals/embed - right now embed works _only_ for
ant1.5 ( since 1.6 already has the same or better code ).
It is a ProjectHelper plugin - if you build embed and place it in
ant1.5 CLASSPATH it'll enable support for "dynamic properties", import
and few other features.

The interfaces are not frozen - I'm sure Stefan and other people will review
it and some improvments will happen. 

Support for JXPath and Velocity dynamic properties is in proposals/embed -
you can use it as example.
