<property file=""/>
reads a set of properties from a file called "".


by setting this to
<property file="${user.home}/"/>
or something similar you can read user-specific properties /
paths and read in what you like.

As far as I know, you can then set properties which they haven't
set automatically using something like
<condition property="p1" value="p2">
  <equals arg1="${p1}" arg2="$${p1}"/>

or the <not><isset></not> nested task, which certainly works
in 1.4.1 (I havent tried it on 1.5b1). I have a similar
situation to what I think you're describing, and that's what
I do.
