XML configuration files should not have thier values converted to Properties format

That is an interesting request.

Looking at the code, the conversion is performed within the  
setParameter(Element, PropertySetter) method calling OptionConverter.
convertSpecialCharacters(String).

In some (if not most) cases, the user would want to have special characters 
converted. For example, the user would probably prefer to have c:\\x.txt 
converted to c:\x.txt. That is the current behavior.

However, she probably would not want to have c:\t.txt converted to "c:<TAB>.
txt".

One solution is to have an option set by the user in the config file to disable 
the current special chratacters conversion. Would that work for you? Do you have 
a better idea?
