Auto discovery of build.xml when ant is run

           Summary: Auto discovery of build.xml when ant is run
           Product: Ant
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Build Process
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: Nagendra.Raja@sun.com


When the ant script is run in a the subdirectory of module source where there 
is no build.xml, then ant script or the org.apache.tools.ant.launch.Launcher 
class should look for the module build.xml by traversing up the directories and 
do the build based on this file.

This feature would beat the make files feature of running the make at any 
directory level with out needing to have build.xml at each directory level.

In simipler words, in case build.xml is not present in the current direcotry, 
the ant tool should keep looking for it in parent direcotry. If not found in 
parent it should look for parents parent directory on so on.. This should 
continue till it finds build.xml in on of the parent.

Regards,
Nagendra
