Provide an ability to define extra artifact attributes to an already existing group, name and version
Ivy also supports the module and branch pattern attributes, which are commonly used in companies that are already using pure Ivy based Ant builds.

To make things more generic, it would be nice to add support to the dependency declaration in such a way, that there is an ability to add other arbitrary properties to the artifact, i.e.

compile group: 'javax.servlet', name: 'servlet-api', version: '2.5', projectname: "tomcat"

where projectname is an added attribute.
Then have an ability to map that into an Ivy pattern when using a resolver, so that the value of projectname attribute can be used as a url segment delimiter or in some other ways that might come up.

repositories {
    add(new org.apache.ivy.plugins.resolver.FileSystemResolver()) {
        name = 'repo'
        addIvyPattern "$projectDir/repo/[organisation]/[projectname]/[module]-ivy-[revision].xml"
        addArtifactPattern "$projectDir/repo/[organisation]/[projectname]/[module]-[revision](-[classifier]).[ext]"
        descriptor = 'optional'
        checkmodified = true

Sorry, Alex that this feature does not make it into 0.9. We will tackle the dependency DSL in the first 1.0 milestone (for which we plan 4 week cycles).
