Import: Target Handling Bug





------- Additional Comments From eeaston@ptc.com  2004-04-19 14:40 -------
I really don't think that allowing developers to qualify targets with their 
declaring project names is "bad practice."  Most languages that support a 
notion of override give you this fine degree of control.  Obviously, using a 
fully qualified target (<project>.<target>) when the unqualified one is 
sufficient isn't recommended (polymorphism is good).  But not leaving a 
developer with a consistent mechanism to ensure that the base/overridable 
target is always called in certain cases is a problem.

I'm not certain that we have to always make all targets referencable with the 
project name.  I'm sure this has performance implications.  So as DD suggests 
an import attribute that allows the importER to control the behavior sounds 
reasonable.
