I'm using Ant to manage the setting of the path. In other words I define 
a path in my build and I use the echoproperties task to generate under a temp directory. I then reference the 
generated in the Anakia task. By the way I just 
found out that I cannot use echoproperties this way even after using 
pathconvert to replace backslashes with forward slashes because it 
escapes the colon in the drive letter as well. This really blows because 
where a normal properties object would convert the escape sequences 
ExtendedProperties treats them verbatim.
