Yes, I understand and I just want to mention that there is another bug (or
undocumented behaviour).

On my side, I have found a workaround immediately:

1) Never introduce dependencies inside the same property file.
2) Express dependent values in build files or separate property files.

The resulting constraint for property files users is: Never use properties
redefined locally. Instead, use their literal value (which is defined locally).

These rules should work for anybody without introducing huge constraints.
