Okay, here's my first attempt.
It adds two new attributes to <echoproperties>:
- format - enumerated attribute. Either "xml" or "text".
- srcfile - loads the properties from a file. If not specified,
  echoproperties behaves like it does now and uses ant's
  property set.

I carefully added the XML output to the existing class.
One may factor out the common code and write a PropertyWriter
Interface and make XMLPropertyWriter and JdkPropertyWriter
extend it.

Matt, would you please look at the code as it is completely untested :-)
(At least, it compiles)
