The workaround is to use settings specific to IvyDE which merely include
your usual settings + load the properties file in which you define your
versions. But I think there's an open issue in IvyDE JIRA asking to support
properties loading in IvyDE directly to avoid this 'trick', feel free to
submit a patch.
