Oh... oops =)  I did not take too close of a look at what
setUserProperty() was actually doing.  I made a poor assumption... and
didn't check it out fully.  My apologies.

Perhaps a little javadoc for getProperty() and getUserProperty() might
eliminate such mistakes in the future.

This seems a bit excessive... to take every property, which is already in
a hashtable, and copy it into another hashtable.  I am not sure what you
mean by change Project's behavior.  Do you mean the change to
replace()... could you please explain.
