right now you can't define a patternset inside a target - just at the
project level.

<patternset>
  <include name="${foo}" />
</patternset>

would expand foo at the time this patternset get's defined - this
means, foo had to be defined on the project level - i.e. no
conditional setting of foo depending on context.
