there is a faint possibility that someone accidentally has this behaviour in
their file; we have broken this in ant1.5 and have to spell it out in big
letters in the whatsnew file.

I am expecting a bugrep on this subject, and more on "ant maps double $$
into single $" sometime after ant1.5 ships, but the hope is that they will
be less than the "single $ signs get stripped" reports
