By using filter readers in <loadproperties>, you might be able to
filter-out properties that don't start with a given prefix (thus
hiding them, as if not in the file). What I'm not sure of if whether
you can also strip the prefix using filter readers, kinda like what's
possible with <propertyset> and <mapper>. Using the latter 2 in
<java>, I used to select one set of properties or another based on a
prefix, which sounds like what you're trying to do. But properties
whose names have been stripped of the prefix were passed to the forked
sub-process, while you want the properties to become part of the
current's build (Project in fact). --DD
