Actually, that's what I did. I took the code from XMLproperty and made
a new util.Properties that subclasses java.util.Properties. The
XMLproperty task now uses this as does the FilterSet. Filter needed to
be modified to allow a different format for the properties and to
pass through some XML parsing options.

Does this sound alright?  The only thing that bothers me about this is
adding all of the XML parsing options to the Filter task, and eventually

Also, where would this functionality go release-wise, post 1.5?
