There is no real point in making the sort optional.  Right now, since the 
properties are kept in a Hashtable, the order is indeterminate, so there is no 
legitimate claim that changing in the order should be a problem for anyone.  
Anyone relying on the output of echoproperties being in random order "gets 
what they deserve."  ;-)

Matt Benson's point is correct - the XML format is already sorted.  The patch 
I added makes the flat file format (which goes to the logger if no destfile is 
specified) sorted as well.
