These two are the same.

util.Property comes from the buildbot.util package which contains a
bunch of miscellaneous stuff as entry points.

buildbot.process.properties.Property is one of them.

We also have "from buildbot.plugins import util" and use "util.Property" in our other build steps. Do we really need to be making that distinction or should we (in our new 2.8.2 configuration) be using "util.Property" everywhere?
