I actually don't think it should be changed.  <echoproperties> is for
dumping properties and you may not want to restrict the prefix specified to
having a "." after it.  <property> prefix works like the environment

Somewhat confusing, yes. But not a show-stopper and probably not worth
changing either task because each has its own reasons for doing it the way
it does.

Subject: Ant 1.5Beta1 - prefix Attribute

The prefix attribute for <property> and <echoproperties> slightly
differs.  Can this be made identical ?

<property> adds a '.' if not specified, while
<echoproperties> has no '.' handling.
