"always" means since Ant 1.1.

It has been introduced (slipped in) somewhere between the release of
Tomcat 3.1 (which included an untagged version of Ant) and Ant 1.1
when the first iteration of "user properties" and command line
specified properties taking precedence over build file specified ones
came in.  I don't think it has been a conscious decision at that time
at all.
