It is there for internal use only this is all the options that could be
available from the command line but that are sometimes undocumented or not
really well documented or useless. I just made put them all and documented
only those that are useful. So it is difficult to not expose setters...while
I could need to use them for debugging quickly the output from the
buildfile. They are just not documented, what is not documented is subject
to change without notice. :)

I will have first to look into XDoclet :)
