PropertyFile task unnecessarily escapes colons in the value section

           Summary: PropertyFile task unnecessarily escapes colons in the
                    value section
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.4.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Optional Tasks
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: steve.sweet@hutchison3g.com


When updating a properties file with Ant, if the value (NOT the key name) 
contains colons (eg c:/dir/thing/that.html), the colon gets escaped with a 
backslash: c\:/dir/thing/that.html. This should not happen in the value part, 
only the key part.

Also, will the task leave comments in tact soon?!
