Yes, that what I recommend as well.

I'd recommend to use <pathconvert> before the <echo>, rather than a
filter chain with <loadfile>. In fact, since you are not echo'ing out
a properties file it seems, you could even do the direct <echo> and
use <pathconvert> after the <loadfile> as well, because <loadfile> is
not affected with baskslash-based escape sequences. --DD
