You can call it a limitation of sort, sure.

But there's an easy work-around. Instead of having a single property file with

foo.eg=1
bar.eg=2
baz.eg=3

have 3 property files foo.properties, bar.properties, etc.. containing
the un-suffixed eg (and co.) properties, and in the build file simply
<property file="${env}.properties" />.

This is the "Ant way" (tm) of doing this that doesn't require jumping
thry any hoops. --DD
