+ Ideally, a package could be added to a build process implicitly by merely 
+ constructing a minimal build.xml file in the package directory, and adding the 
+ directory structure to a /src directory structure. This would allow the 
+ flexbility to add to a project dynamically, without requiring an edit to the 
+ master build.xml file every time.
+ 
+ This could be implemented by simply adding optional <fileset> support to 
+ the ant task. Preference could be given to the antfile attribute, but if this 
+ is not set, then the fileset(s) could be resolved into a list of builds, 
+ wherein the ant task would execute the target specified by the target 
+ attribute, if it exists.
+ 
+ This feature could add to the flexibility of the build process where multiple 
+ developers may be involved, and only a few know Ant.
