We are using the patched version, but Gump uses the CVS version...

Ant friends, could you please consider this patch for inclusion?

*[PATCH] Make XmlProperty not fail if the file is missing*

the property task does not fail if a property file defined is missing.
This does not happen with XmlProperty, and it makes it more difficult to 
use the
very common pattern of defining properties first from th euser home, 
then user
properties in the project dir, and finally the project ones.

Example in the current Ant buildfile:

   <!-- Give user a chance to override without editing this file
        (and without typing -D each time it compiles it) -->
   <property file=""/>
   <property file="${user.home}/"/>


Thanks :-)
