PropertyHelper data members should be protected, not private

           Summary: PropertyHelper data members should be protected, not
                    private
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: carej@us.ibm.com


I have a requirement to obsfucate passwords from being printed into debug logs.
I am trying to use the ant.PropertyHelper reference to use a custom
PropertyHelper to satisfy this requirement by overriding the various
"set*Property" methods & checking if the property name matches a certain regex.
If the name matches the regex then the actual password value is not logged.

Unfortunately the maps used to store the properties in PropertyHelper are all
marked private, so my PropertyHelper extension class can not access them. It
would be helpful if these members (e.g. "properties", "userProperties" and
"inheritedProperties") could be made protected rather than private.
