Subject [Patch]
Date Sat, 13 Apr 2002 06:34:55 GMT

This patch changes property expansion in the following way

1. single $ signs are passed through unchanged
2. double $$ signs are turned into single $ signs

I think going to single $ passthrough will avoid confusion; retaining the
$$ -> $ will keep backwards compatibilty working.

the only risk here is that people with broken build files, accidentally
using $ where it was being stripped but somehow having the build file
working, will find it now breaks, and not with an error message.
