Indeed. As I've thought about it more, I wonder what we should be doing 
here. All the other tasks in the imported build file will be resolving 
relative to the basedir of the importing build, not the build in which they 
are defined. Is that good? I feel it may cause some problems, some 
unexpected behaviour.

Perhaps we need to examine the use cases for imported builds. I'm sure 
Nicola Ken will tell me some :-)

If the imported files need to be designed apriori to be importable, then 
perhaps we should use a different container element for them. <importable> 
instead of <project> and leave the basedir out of it.
