What other properties would you like? The user's manual section on build
properties[1] describes the existing ones and how to allow your own custom
steps to create new ones.. are there other properties that would be useful on
the build overall (as opposed to being specific to one of your custom steps)
that don't exist yet?

It's documented in the section[2] on "Debug options". If you look at the
manual in the 'info' browser then you get a nice index, such that typing "i
manhole <RET>" will take you right to the section. The HTML version that's
online has this index sitting at the very bottom.. look for the link entitled

If those docs aren't sufficient, please let me know.
