Uhm, yes.  But the information is needed by the build file, not Ant.
Most of the time the builds want to copy files referenced by
properties and we need to override those properties, that's all.

I don't think this is true.  Most projects build from their build
files without doing anything specific in order to make Gump happy.

There are a few projects that need to do something special for Gump,
most of the time it is in order to break circular dependencies - like
the dom4j <-> jaxen problem - or because they require passing JUnit
tests before creating a jar but the tests fail in Gump.
