+     * this level variable substitution is not yet performed. The returned
+     * object is an internal representation of the property value for the passed
+     * in key. It is owned by the <code>Configuration</code> object. So a caller
+     * should not modify this object. It cannot be guaranteed that this object
+     * will stay constant over time (i.e. further update operations on the
+     * configuration may change its internal state).
