Cross buildfile dependency

           Summary: Cross buildfile dependency
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.4
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: mla@agero.se


I would like to suggest that the depends attribute on targets shall support 
targets in other build.xml files. This way the project build can be split into 
subprojects (with their own build.xml files), without having to use the 
explicit <ANT> task to handle dependencies and flags to assure that each 
subproject is only built once (in case of multiple dependencies).
Some nice syntax could be used. For example:
depends="subproject/build.xml:targetname"
