Support for variables in the retrieve pattern

    Description

      The retrieve pattern for the classpath container appears to be strictly relative to the project.

      In Ivy/ant, it is possible to specify something like

      ${some.dir}/lib/[organisation]/[artifact]-[revision](-[classifier]).[ext]
      

      We would like to use the same in IvyDE, e.g. utilizing Eclipse variable substitution mechanism so that you could use

      ${env_var:SOME_HOME}/lib/[organisation]/[artifact]-[revision](-[classifier]).[ext]
      

      Doing this relative to the project e.g. with

      ../../../lib/[organisation]/[artifact]-[revision](-[classifier]).[ext]
      

      would be too fragile as it would break as soon as a project is moved in the directory hierarchy.
