Add support for variable expansion in sigil.property values
-----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: FELIX-1627
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-1627
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Sigil
            Reporter: David Savage


Currently sigil.properties supports expansion of ${key} values in a number of key places such
as -defaults location and translation of ${.} and ${..} to paths relative to the sigil.properties
file.

Proposal to make this behaviour universal for all values.

As part of this fix we should also address consistency issues with path locations wrt ${.}
and ${..}

In most places:

key: path/to/resource

is considered a path relative to the jvm process that executes where as 

key: ${.}/path/to/resource

is considered a path relative to the sigil.properties file

However this is not true for the -sourcedirs attribute which has explicit parsing to make


-sourcedirs: src

imply the source dir relative to the sigil.properties file.

Suggestion to make source dirs behaviour default and use ${.} syntax only for jvm process
paths.
