+ Ideally, a build process or processes could be initialized through the use of 
+ the Ant task by calling a target on an environment.xml-type file. This way, all 
+ of a set of build.xml's would get the same initial build environment, without 
+ having to duplicate the checks and init's in all build files. 
+ 
+ I propose to put an additional attribute in the Ant taskdef to allow the 
+ preservation of this child environment, and integration back into the parent. 
+ The added attribute could be optional and default to "false", to avoid breaking 
+ existing code.
+ 
+ This change would further modularize an already modularized project, and could 
+ help take it from a procedural analogy to an OO analogy of a build process.
