I don't either. 

Use case 1 is what I need and why I worked on import in the first place.
I don't like "if I don't need something, the use case is invalid" attitude. 
I don't care about use case 2, but I understand some other people need

(1) may not work for n arbitrary projects - but I'm pretty sure it will
work for the 4-5 components of tomcat and few of the commons components
that are used. And <ant> is too limited for that.
If some small changes will be need in the build files - that's fine,
as long as they work both imported and standalone.

I'll wait for things to cool down - and if they do and use case 1 is still
on the table, I'll try to implement what I proposed earlier - attach a 
"Source" object to each UnknownElement, with base and all the extra info.
