      Description

      When overriding configuration using environment variables (and most likely also system properties), it is not possible to express the null value. This is sometimes required, e.g. to set the various *-relative-to management attributes (where null means that the corresponding path attribute is absolute path).

      We should invent a placeholder value, such as <<null>>, which would be translated to null when present.
