Naah there is no project/target inheritance in myrmidon. I believe I may have 
been one of the people who initially vetoed that feature. This is less 
inheritance and all that jazz, it is just defining a task in 
terms of other tasks.However I find it more useful to think of it as defining 
a new "build process" as a task.

It would be possible to implement inheritance in myrmidon as it is all fairly 
pluggable however we have not yet gone down that path to test things out.
