It would be interesting if Ant could notify listeners (or a special sort of listeners) of property expansion. WebTest (http://webtest.canoo.com) makes an intensive use of ant (WebTest steps are expressed as ant Tasks) and we need to "see" how the tasks have been configured to generate a comprehensive report. This is not really easy (own PropertyHelper, guess which property of which class has been expanded, ...) and could be much easier and safer if Ant could notify of what is done in RuntimeConfigurable#maybeConfigure and IntrospectionHelper. I suppose that it could be interesting not only for WebTest but for instance for IDE too.
