Absolutely, doing something here would be a good idea.  Certainly the  
quote thing threw me off.  Very good catch on your part.

The standard way I like to slice and dice these kinds of situations is  
to make the behavior configurable and set the default to favor the  

Stripping them off, logging a warning that we did so, and including  
the configurable flag in the warning seems like the way to go.  We  
might want to do that for all properties.

Now that I think about it I've done the quote thing myself thinking  
that they'll be "understood" by java.util.Properties, which they aren't.

Kicking this over to dev@ so we can chat about how to roll this out.
