I came to Ant some time after they'd been added, so I may be wrong. I
think a "user" property is one the user has set by command line
arguments - this should always take precedence over <property> tags.

In the context of <ant> I feel it is quite reasonable to view nested
<property> elements much the same as command line arguments, so they
ought to be treated like "user" property which they are.
