Yes, that a question... In trying to figure out why I was having
problems using a property named "<doxygen:processor>" I ran into this:

# We don't add default for elements with ":" inside. This catches:
# 1. Conditional properties --- we don't want <variant>debug:<define>DEBUG
# to be takes as specified value for <variant>
# 2. Free properties with ":" in values. We don't care, since free
# don't have defaults.

Hence my question. Is there some description of what a property name
syntax should be? Especially what kinds of chars we should not use in a
property name?
