As I said before, it would be a terrible idea to require people to read the
build.xml file to figure out what properties they need to override. I liken
that to requiring people to read a Makefile or ./configure script.

If someone gives me a -1, then we are in a stalemate and need to continue to
discuss this further. I gave my response to Dmitry's posting, lets wait for
his response.

p.s. Double negatives are not very clear. Either vote +1 or -1.
