Will this also be documented on the plugin homepage?

> It would be great, if there was a mechanism that let's you escape a property so that
it is not replaced by the filtering machism. E.g. in a log4j.xml configuration file you might
want to preserve ${user.home}, but replace some other property like ${log.dir}. Currently
there is no convenient way to achieve that.
> Alternatively to escaping, it would be helpful, if one could choose the token format.
So, if one could say, only honor @token@ and not ${token} (or the other way around) one could
easily work around the escape problem.
> Workaround for the problem mentioned above:
> replace the ${user.home} in log4j.xml with @start@user.home@end@ and define     start=${
   and end=$}   in the property file
