I did have a look at that before I sent the post (especially the XPath 
example), but I can't see how this would work with my requirements. The 
"input" for repeat would be an regex query that returns n hits; n 
myMenuItemUrl. Or I would have to create a collection of tokens (comma 
separated list, again driven by regex) and make use of antcontrib 
<foreach list="${tokens}"?
