Why not ? 

Maybe not any 5 different projects - but at least for the 4-5 tomcat
components, most commons, etc. Maybe with small changes.

Property names - clashes are desirable :-) ( i.e. same naming conventions
for locating .jars, paths, etc ). 

For targets - we already rewrite then on conflict. That's where some
changes may be needed in the build files.

I'm not sure I understood your proposal for basedir - you disagree with 
using the imported file basedir as default, but I fail to see what 
alternative you propose and what use case.
