Subject Re: JEXL and ant like properties

While adding to an RC is usually bad form we've been guilty of a lot recently, I
think this is worthwhile.

To some extent, most people think this to be a bug in how it worked previously
rather than a missing feature.

Since all the tests pass, and the RC was so recent anyway, I say go for it.
