Floating attribute for import task

I'd go for a path/pathref. My use case for it would be in smartfrog.org's build,
where we have separate components that we want to redist (with source), but
which all depend on ..\..\common.xml that they import. So I'd have the release
script copy that file into the base dir of the archive, then have 
<import file="common.xml">
<path path="../..;." />
</import>
and have it picked up in the parent dir first. This is why it would be more
powerful than a simple 'float' attr; it would be more like the include path used
in C/C++ inclusion.
