I'm fine with you adding a property.

We are interested in adding a parameter in Mondrian.properties to take place
of the hardcoded RolapUtil.mdxNullLiteral variable that is currently set to
"#null". This directly affects how the value is represented in the report
output. The parameter will allow users to set the value to either "#null" or
"" or something else. 
For us it will allow configure the behaviour similar to AS 2000 which shows
it as empty value
