I haven't ;-)

The two issues I faced when creating large multi-build files builds were:
1) Easily refer to the files to import arbitrarily deep in the file hierarchy.
2) Easily use "resources" relative to the imported builds,
   for further <import> or <property file> or such.

I used an env. var. for (1), and the <dirname> on the property set by
import for (2). --DD
